Our Community Forensic Service provides mental health assessment and advice to Police custody areas and magistrates courts.
Our team, which includes psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and social workers provides advice and support about assessing and managing high-risk or complex behaviour
We work with both mental health and learning disability professionals and people who use our services and their carers . This is often in partnership with other agencies including: prisons and the Criminal Justice System; specialist high, medium and low secure hospitals; multi-agency public protection arrangements (MAPPA); and private sector providers.
People using this service are adults who:
People detained at police stations in Guildford, Woking, Reigate, Staines or at magistrates courts within these areas may be assessed on request, irrespective of origin or address.
We will consider accepting someone to the service if their offence, or potential offence, is of a serious or violent nature and there is a high risk of serious harm to others.
Referrals may come from a range of sources, including, Community Mental Heath, Inpatient, Early Intervention in Psychosis, Children and Young Peoples or Assertive Outreach Services.
People must meet the criteria for acceptance to secondary healthcare services however - such as a Community Mental Health or Learning Disability Team.
