Assertive outreach approach

Ensure those that need mental health support aren't missed or lost

Multi-disciplinary team approach

Assertive Outreach is not a treatment but a way of organising and delivering care via a specialised team to provide intensive, highly coordinated and flexible support and treatment for clients with longer term needs living in the community

    Newlands Hospital dealt with the rehabilitation of the elderly client ,then the multidisciplinary team discussed the overall holistic approach for after care.I feel that we should apply this care to people such as the Adolescent in the communities especially should Mental health issues arise there is not enough support given and time is the most vital aspect in supporting these young people at this time when their future depends on mental health professionals intervention.Support is so important .Some young adults have no one to turn to at this age group.
