Ayrshire improve mental health services

3rd June 2009

Community mental health services in Ayrshire and Arran in Scotland are changing to offer people with mental health problems an alternative to hospital admission.

A team of mental health professionals has been created to offer care and treatment to people, who are experiencing a health crisis, in their own homes outside normal working hours. The new crisis out-of-hours service, launched in May, is based at a local NHS Ayrshire Doctors On Call centre and is available to anyone phoning NHS 24 with a serious mental health crisis.
