My experiences were mixed, during my first crisis shortly after the incident I saw someone every day for 3 weeks, they talked about hospitalization on a number of occasions, which could have really helped me.
The second occasion wasn't great as I was referred to them via my Psychiatrist but they didn't get in touch with until after week after the crisis to come round, by that time I was in a better place.
The third time, my mum called them during my psychosis episode, and their advice was "keep her distracted,tell her to read a good book, listen to music" which I was in the middle of my first and only full-blown psychotic break and that experience has put off me off crisis teams for life. I still have had numerous episodes with depression etc and issues with c+p and pregabalin and other tablets and self-harm issues, but I have never bothered calling anyone. So its most likely people are gonna find out the hard way if this continues.
