Personality disorder services

Overview

The Northants personality disorder hub offer a specialist countywide service for adults who have a diagnosis of personality disorder or other related difficulties. We offer a therapy programme to service users, as well as consultation and training to members of staff across the Trust.

 

Who we are

We’re a small multidisciplinary team comprising of nurses, occupational therapists and clinical psychologists. Our service is commissioned to provide evidence-based treatment and promote effective ways of working across care in secondary services.

 

What we do

We provide a Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) programme that involves weekly attendance at group skills training sessions for approximately one year, alongside weekly individual sessions and telephone support.

  • We run skills training groups in Northampton and Kettering.
  • We have a link-worker who works in community mental health teams across Northamptonshire. 
  • Our staff aim to promote understanding and hope regarding the treatability of personality disorder, as well as enhance the capabilities of staff and the effectiveness of treatment provided in general services.
  • Sometimes this will mean that we initially meet with staff over a period of time to help them work more effectively with individuals who are referred to our service. Alternatively, we might decide that our DBT programme could be helpful and we would then make arrangements to meet with you.
  • We do not currently accept referrals from GPs and primary care services and can only work directly with individuals who are already receiving care from the Trust under the Care Programme Approach.
