Referrals and Assessment

You can either self-refer or a professional such as a care coordinator, doctor or key worker could refer you to us. Referrals can be taken over the phone, or a self-referral form is available on our website.

A team member will then contact you to arrange an appointment to carry out an initial assessment, either in Havant or in the East Hants area. During this meeting, they will ask you about your needs and explore how we can best support you.

We will continue to support you alongside your recovery plan and review this together at regular intervals.
