Some of our services now offer video consultations. You should speak to your clinician if this is something you would like them to consider. You can find out more about video consultation here.

Newark and Sherwood Local Mental Health Team

The Newark and Sherwood Local Mental Health Team is a community mental health team. We provide care and treatment for adults who experience mental health difficulties. 

We help clients with their recovery. This includes individual support such as:

  • nurse led clinics
  • medical outpatients
  • short term skills led clinics
  • group therapies
  • family interventions

We work with nurses, occupational therapists, support workers and psychologists. 

We can refer clients to other services for extra support. This may be alongside the support we offer.

Our team has a carers' support group which meet regularly. Please speak to a member of the team if you would like more information about the group.
