The Ealing Assessment Team is now based at Cherington House in Hanwell.
020 8483 2600
If you are worried about your own mental health you should visit your GP, who may refer you to the Assessment Team if your problems are more complicated.
We are the main point of entry for adult mental health services. We help people who live in Ealing aged 18+ who have severe or enduring mental health problems.
We can help to sort out what areas you need help with, keep an eye on how you are, develop your strengths; work to find answers to your current problems and help you to recover.
Assessing your needs
When we make an assessment, we need to gather information to work out if we are the right service to provide help and support. The assessment may involve more than one professional, according to your needs. Following assessment you can expect a clear decision about any support we might be able to give, or suggestions about other more suitable sources of assistance.
The short-term treatment service can provide follow-up services and treatment for people who need support for a limited period.
People whose needs are more complex or who have severe and enduring mental health problems may be referred to one of the two recovery teams, based in the east and west of the borough.
Severe or enduring mental health problems are ones which have a major impact on your ability to cope in everyday living due to a mental disturbance that is not primarily due to alcohol, drugs or organic illness.
If you care for someone who has a mental health problem you’re also entitled to an assessment of your needs, which is reviewed periodically.
We are the main point of entry for adult mental health referrals for Ealing, including referrals to psychology and psychotherapy. We accept referrals from GPs, social services and some other agencies. You may also be referred to us from another part of the Trust.
