The service targets patients over the age of 16 years who present with a mental health need, self harm, suicidal ideation / intent, dementia, memory problems and confusional states in A&E or on a ward. The Liaison Mental team undertake a full psychosocial assessment for all those who present with an act of self harm.

The Liaison Mental Health team has very strong links with the Home Treatment and Crisis Resolution Teams, Community Pathways, as well as the 0-25 service. Working closely with these teams enables Liaison to signpost and best support those in need of mental health services.
