What is the Home Treatment Accreditation Scheme?

The Home Treatment Accreditation Scheme (HTAS) aims to work with teams to assure and improve the quality of crisis resolution and home treatment services for people with acute mental illness and their carers. It engages staff in a comprehensive process of review, through which good practice and high quality care are recognised, and teams are supported to identify and address areas for improvement. 

Involving service users and carers in HTAS is a priority, and people with first hand experience of using crisis resolution or home treatment teams are encouraged to get involved in all stages of the accreditation process.

Accreditation assures staff, service users and carers, commissioners and regulators of the quality of the service being provided.

HTAS is an initiative of the College Centre for Quality Improvement.
