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 therapy to help with recovery. Wherever possible, we help to discharge service users back into the care of their GP once they have had a stable period of recovery.

Our services are for:

  • adults over 65 with a complex mental health issue caused predominantly by a psychological issue and associated high level of risk
  • over 18s who have a mental health issue caused by disease affecting the brain or dementia treatment groups.

Accessing our services

You need to be registered with a GP to use this service.

Referrals can also be made by mental health professionals.

We offer appointments at different locations and in the community. Our sites have parking and disabled access.
