We help people aged 18 or over, who have severe or enduring mental health problems. Severe or enduring mental health problems are ones that have a major impact on your ability to cope in everyday life.
Community mental health teams (CMHTs) are community-based teams including mental health nurses, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, psychologists and support workers. You will have one team member who is responsible for the coordination of your care.
We mainly work in the community, which means we visit you in your own home, or residential and nursing homes.
Our wide range of services helps you to identify the areas you need help with, to develop your strengths and work to find answers to your current problems.
NHFT are currently undertaking a Perinatal Mental Health CQUIN. CQUIN stands for Commissioning for Quality and Innovation. As part of the CQUIN a booklet and a leaflet have been launched to help support mothers and their partners and significant others. For more information please speak to your health professional
