Urgent Care Team (UCT) for North Derbyshire and High Peak


UCT is a team of practitioners who will respond to acute mental health presentation in young people under the age of 18. We will respond within 4 hours if your mental health presentation is serious and you are seriously self-harming or you present with serious suicidal thoughts. We provide a quick response to your needs and, if suitable, we will see you in the community. We will work with you and your family/carers to ensure the best outcome for you.

You can find out more detailed information about our UCT team and what to expect from an assessment here.

We can help in cases of:

  • Serious self-harm.

  • Active suicidal thoughts and behaviours.
  • Acute mental health presentation or relapse.
