Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Recovery Houses
Look Ahead provides five mental health crisis and recovery services across Tower Hamlets, Barnet, Enfield, Haringey (BEH) and Islington.
Our three Recovery Houses in BEH work in close partnership with BEH NHS Mental Health Trust to provide short-term accommodation for those experiencing crisis or needing additional support following hospital discharge.
Our team works closely with the NHS Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team (CRHTT), bed managers, Discharge Intervention Team (DIT) and Liaison Team.
Our Resettlement Worker works with the DIT, care coordinators and local authority housing departments to ensure that customers are safely discharged to more suitable accommodation. This relieves pressure on beds and reduces the need for expensive out-of-borough placements.
Effective partnership working with the CRHTT, who are responsible for medical intervention, promotes engagement with treatment plans.
