Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT) for Older People

We work with service users who have mental health difficulties and need specialist mental health support.

We provide care management and general emotional support, as well as specific and other modes of therapy that will help with recovery. Wherever possible, we help to discharge service users back to the care of their GP once a stable period of recovery is achieved.

Our services are available to older adults over 65 for those with a mental health issue which has a predominantly psychological cause. Also for those over 18 who have a mental health issue caused by disease affecting the brain or dementia treatment groups.


Service opening hours

Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
