Referral Criteria

People aged 16 and over (and unaccompanied asylum seeking children who are under 16 years) and who live in Greater Glasgow and Clyde

  • who have a history of complex trauma (that is repeated interpersonal trauma, including  violence, abuse or neglect)
  • that has led to Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder  including symptoms of PTSD and mood and emotion regulation difficulties and changes to people’s beliefs about themselves and the world. PTSD symptoms include: re-experiencing the traumatic event(s); avoidance of trauma related stimuli; trauma related arousal and reactivity; negative thoughts and feelings
  • or other mental health difficulties that are severe and disabling responses to trauma (e.g. complicated dissociative disorders, mutism, enduring personality change after catastrophic events etc)

The service prioritises people who experience additional social inequalities or barriers to accessing health care such as those who are homeless or leaving care; asylum seekers and refugees who are victims of torture and organised violence; trafficking victims for all forms of exploitation; vulnerable female offenders.

 

Please note, the GPTS is not an emergency service (open Monday to Friday 9 am to 5pm), therefore cannot accept urgent referrals. If the individual requires more urgent input, please refer to the person’s local CMHT/Crisis service. If unsure, we have a duty system which operates daily.  Please feel free to discuss any queries or concerns with us.
