Our standards

The HTAS standards provide a clear and comprehensive description of best practice in Home Treatment and Crisis Teams.

Our standards are based on the available literature and extensive consultation with staff, patients and carers with experience in crisis resolution and home treatment. 

The HTAS standards are reviewed at least every two years. The fourth edition of standards were published in November 2019.

The standards cover the following areas;

  • Service provision and structure
  • Staffing and training
  • Assessment, care planning and treatment
  • Patient and carer experience
