RAID works alongside with Pennine Acute trust to assess individuals over the age of 65 who are experiencing acute confusion, dementia, depression, anxiety and psychosis. North Manchester do assess individuals under 65 and over.
RAID has four sub teams based in a hospital setting, it is recommended that the student spends at least one week at each sub team to provide a wider exposure to mental health. This can be negotiated with your mentor at the first initial meeting.
RAID have recently expanded into the community thus it would be good to spend a couple of days with each team again which can be negotiated with your mentor
We will try to accommodate a student to the catchment area to where they live but as you can appreciate this is not always possible
