Section 10 – Action following a primary mental health assessment

18.This section relates to the second aspect of assessment, which is where services other than local primary mental health treatment, might benefit the individual. The local primary mental health partner responsible for assessment must first consider whether provision of services would be its responsibility, and if so, decide whether to provide them. Where that partner does not consider it is the provider, the partner must make an onward referral to the body that the partner considers would be responsible.
