Urgent mental healthcare for adults

Ambulatory emergency team (AAT) offers mental health care to you who are in a difficult situation or acute crisis. This can be, for example, a life crisis, anxiety, depression, insomnia, confusion/psychosis and suicidal thoughts. You do not need a referral from a GP to contact us. You can contact us by phone during our opening hours.

In case of life-threatening situations concerning mental health and suicidal thoughts, call the emergency medical number 113. If the problem is not life-threatening, but also can not wait until you contact the GP during opening hours, you can call the emergency room on 116 117.

What happens when you contact us?

  • In the first telephone conversation, we will map your situation and your needs.
  • Based on the first conversation, we will assess with you whether it is appropriate to continue follow-up from us for a shorter period of time, or whether you should have follow-up from other offers.
  • We can offer further consultations by telephone, attendance at our premises or home visits within 24 hours where it is deemed appropriate and is a wish of the patient.
  • We can also offer video consultation where it is considered professionally sound and is a request from the patient.
  • You pay a deductible when following up an outpatient emergency team. If you have a free card, the deductible will be covered by this. You do not pay a deductible the first time you call us.
  • If you are prevented from reaching the agreement, you must give notice within 24 hours before the agreement to avoid a payment fee.
