This service aims to enhance the existing pathway for those individuals (16 years+) who are experiencing mental health distress and who come to the attention of Police Scotland and the Custody Suite at Kittybrewster or who present to the ED Dept. at ARI.
The custody suites are hosted by Aberdeenshire and used by offenders and patients who are mainly from Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire. The ED Department will see patients from both authority areas. Therefore, the service model has been developed jointly and will be implemented and evaluated jointly.
