There are a range of community based mental health services and teams across Western Bay including:

– Complex Needs Services for Women, a community dialectical behaviour therapy service for women with mental health complex needs.

– Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Teams (CRHTT) who offer support and care for those people who without it would be admitted to hospital, also supporting the early discharge of those people who have required inpatient care.

– Crisis Recovery Unites (CRU) – a day hospital type environment for people who require more support than can be delivered in their own home but do not need hospital admission.

– Prison In-Reach Team (PIR) – a community mental health team based within both HMP Parc and HMP Swansea, providing assessment, management and care co-ordination for prisoners who are presenting with serious mental illness.
