Revolving Doors Agency Link Options

Description: The ‘revolving door’ group refers to people who are caught in a cycle of crisis, crime and mental illness, whereby they are repeatedly in contact with the police and often detained in prison. This group has multiple problems for which they need the input of a wide range of agencies, including housing, drugs, mental health, and benefits.

The mental health problems of the group are usually a core or exacerbating factor. Routinely, they fall through the gaps of existing mental health service provision, as their mental health problems are not considered sufficiently ‘severe’ to warrant care from statutory services; but they are frequently excluded from mainstream services in the community, such as GPs and Housing Associations, on account of the perceived complexity of their needs and their often challenging behaviour.
