Frequently Asked Questions about BREVIN’s Unique Private Mental Health Treatment Service

Currently BREVIN is the only private community mental health treatment team (CMHT) in London and this remains the case for the past 8 
years. This means you receive co-ordinated care from a Multi-Disciplinary Team who specialise in the delivery of mental health care in the
community and within the home.

All clients are treated in their own homes let it be hourly visits or 12 and 24 hour live in care.

 

We see family involvement as integral to the clinical pathway of BREVIN and while expectations are made on a case by case basis, families should expect to be actively involved as we know that this aids the treatment process.

 

Privacy is of the utmost importance to BREVIN. We ensure confidentiality through our highly trained, professional and discreet mental health professionals. No third party has access to medical records, health information, or any information about a client’s stay without prior written authorisation from the client.

 

The treatment team works closely with the client as well as with the family, significant friends, and outside providers to develop a personalised aftercare plan. This would normally involve a managed step-down phase and then a long-term plan to maintain the client’s progress.

 

As BREVIN is a multi-disciplinary team there could be a single practitioner such as a Community Psychiatric Nurse or a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner visiting your home or living in. However, as your needs change you may have a mental health Occupational Therapist, Nutritionist or Graded Exercise Specialist for example.

 

As each case is different this timescale may vary widely due to the complications of some mental illness. An assessment is carried out prior to admission to the service which will give the clinical team a better understanding of the clinical need. At that point we will be better able to advise on the approximate length of treatment.
