There are many kinds of crisis service. Most are open only to people who have been diagnosed as mentally ill. They facilitate rapid admission to short-stay in-patient services with the back-up of multidisciplinary teams working in the community.

Several have demonstrated striking reductions in the rate and duration of hospital admissions without detriment to the subsequent health or social adjustment of the patient.
