The Platform

The Platform is a 6 bedded in-patient service for young people aged 16 -17 years from across Lancashire who can no longer be safely and effectively managed in their own home/community setting.  The service accepts admissions for young people experiencing acute mental health disturbances and can be accessed 24/7 following assessment by the Crisis Resolution and Home treatment Team.

The Service provides a wide range of psychological, medical and social interventions from an experienced Multidisciplinary team which includes Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Nurses, Occupational Therapist, Psychodynamic Therapist, Family Therapist, Dietician and Social Worker.

Young people and families are actively encouraged to participate in their care planning and work in collaboration with the team, whilst supported by our participation workers and our independent advocate.
