The Core Study



National Audit Office (2008) CRHT: The Service User and Carer Experience

'CRHT interventions should be based on a strong awareness of the service user's home environment, including any issues there that may trigger anxiety or stress. Part of the intended benefit of the CRHT model is that the team can observe people first-hand in the context of their home and social network, identifying possible problems and trigger factors more easily as most people behave more naturally in their own homes.28 Thus the CRHT team should consider all such factors in assessing the feasibility of home treatment, including an appraisal of whether possible trigger factors are inextricable from the home environment itself.'
