BACKGROUND: A reformation of psychiatry was set up in Belgium with the establishment of mobile crisis teams.

SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of the patients referred to the mobile team "Pharos" in the period between December 2013 and December 2018.

RESULTS: The number of patients is growing over the years and the most common referral reasons are suicidal thoughts and depressive mood. We have a high percentage of inclusions, maybe because the main referrers are GPs. Alcohol withdrawal at home is feasable and safe.

CONCLUSION: Many psychiatric crisis situations can be managed at home with support of mobile teams, but further research is needed to provide evidence on outcome and cost effectiveness.
