Our services include child and adolescent mental health services, services for adults and older people, and care and support for people of all ages who suffer from dementia. Many of our services are provided at home or in community settings.
We also have specialist hospitals, which offer care and support in specially designed therapeutic settings.
Mental health problems can affect people of all ages and walks of life as it can be triggered by physical, social, environmental or/and genetic factors. Some people are more at risk of experiencing mental health problems than others. There are some conditions that are more or less likely depending on your gender.
Mental health problems are often more likely to develop at certain ages. Therefore how old you are can affect your risk of becoming unwell.
If you're having mental health problems, you're not alone. About one in four of us will experience some form of mental health problems at some time in our lives, and one in ten children and young people under 15 years has a mental disorder.
The SPoA (Single Point of Access) will enable a better entry into our health and social care mental health services, and enable easier access to services, driving up standards of quality care, and a total commitment to improving the patient experience.
We have reviewed access into the CMHT and Crisis teams at Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and have further developed and streamlined referrals into the service. There will now be four ‘referral hubs’ where GPs can fax, telephone or email referrals into the service.
