The Partnership Outreach Team (POT) provides inpatient support for under 18s with an outreach component. It offers intensive support and treatment to children and young people who have experienced a mental health crisis, requiring attendance at A&E.

POT is a pilot project, part of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAHMS). POT provides an intensive, flexible and community based approach, working closely with a wide range of professionals and organisations to provide a consistent and reliable intervention to vulnerable young people and their families.

POT does not take direct referrals, but works with young people presenting to A&E.
