There has been a rapid expansion of crisis resolution and home treatment (CRHT) teams round the country. Recent study has shown that these have led to significant reductions in hospital admission rates. However, to date there does not appear to be any literature discussing the roles and function of such teams, how they were set up and exactly what sorts of services and treatments they provide. This paper discusses the implementation of the Leicestershire County CRHT operational model, its main functions and infrastructure. It explains what constitutes home treatment, as well as the role of the link nurse in facilitating early discharge from hospital. It also presents a discussion about the ways in which members of black and other minority ethnic (BME) groups may benefit from having a discreet accessible psychiatric service 24 hours a day, seven days a week within the privacy of their own homes.
