Working with men in crisis
a psychological framework for crisis intervention in home treatment teams
Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Teams (CRHTT's) provide an alternative to hospital admission for people in acute mental health crises, including those who are suicidal. With men being at increased risk of suicide and more likely to present to services in the acute phase of illness, CRHTT's may play an important role in helping to reduce the high rates of suicide in men. Furthermore, there is a growing need for effective psychological interventions in this setting. The following chapter provides an overview of a psychological model for crisis intervention (Sullivan in Clinical Psychology Forum 310: 39–43, 2018) refined to be gender sensitive to men who are suicidal and in crisis.
