Referrals to ADAPT may come from PCP via triage, from the Inpatient Wards, Crisis teams, Early Intervention in Psychosis teams (following clarification of diagnosis), Forensic services or as a result of out of area transfers.

The Intensive Case Management in Psychosis Team provides a flexible service to all adults within the psychosis clusters who currently require secondary community mental health care in the locality.
