Adult community mental health team (CMHT)


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.


Who we are

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.


What we do

We mainly work in the community, which means we visit you in your own home, or residential and nursing homes.

  • Our teams provide a wide range of support including assessment, monitoring and memory services. We also offer carer’s support and planned therapeutic groups, such as relaxation, anxiety management and cognitive stimulation therapy.
  • Most people who use adult mental health services start by talking to someone in our team. Following this, we liaise with other agencies and the voluntary sector to increase your mental and physical wellbeing.


More information

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.
