 What help do you offer?

​We are a health and social care community team providing assessment, treatment and support if you are over 25 and experiencing mental health issues.

We follow the principles of recovery and social inclusion and work closely with partner agencies both voluntary and statutory. We also provide carer assessments and community care assessments.

 How do I get help from your service?

 What can I expect from you?

​When you are referred to us, one of our doctors, social workers, nurses or occupational therapists assesses you. This assessment forms the basis of the treatment you receive from us, jointly decided between you and your assessor. You could require our service or else you could be signposted to a more appropriate one.

Once accepted to our service, any interventions are time limited. We hold regular reviews to enable us both to work towards your discharge planning. You may be seen at home or in a Trust building.
