How to Get Help

If you feel that you would like some support from the PIER team then you can visit your own G.P. who should, if appropriate to do so, make a referral to the PIER team.

You can also contact the following places:

  •  School Nurse
  •  Mental Health Nurse or Counsellor at College/University
  •  Out of hours – Telephone your G.P to access out of hours support, this could include
     seeing the crisis team, who can refer you to the PIER team if appropriate to do so.
  •  Accident & Emergency

 What happens next (assessment)

  • Within the PIER Team, we have allocated care Co-ordinators who carry out assessments with new referrals.
  • Once the assessment process has been completed and suitability for PIER Team has been established, the individual will be introduced to their allocated Care Co-ordinator. If it is felt that the PIER Team is not the most appropriate service to meet the individual's current needs, the assessment team will signpost the person to other service(s).


It is expected that following the initial referral/screening process clients will receive care from Early Intervention in Psychosis Service for three years.

Where a client is approaching the 3 year period, a review with the client and all practitioners involved should be scheduled in order to review progress, re-assess current needs and discuss future care needs.
