The Liaison and Diversion Service help support individuals who identify with having Mental Health needs such as: Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Personality Disorders and more.
Mental Health Practitioners are appointed across all of our teams in West Yorkshire, who are located both within the community and the court arena.
Our community Mental Health Practitioners aim to offer fair access to Mental Health services for those individuals who have come through police custody and support them to access and engage in relevant support.
We have Mental Health Practitioners based in both Magistrates and Crown Courts across West Yorkshire. Their roles involve assessing and working with individuals in mental health acute and crisis situations. With knowledge of statutory and non-statutory services they work with partners to assess and support service users through the judicial processes advising on support for individual’s mental health providing assessments and reports when necessary.
