The dementia and older people’s mental health community team has community mental health teams that are based across the county providing locally based services supporting people in their own homes and in a variety of care settings. The community services accept referrals from primary care such as a GP, district nurse, specialist service, social care and voluntary services. Self referrals can be made, although individuals are encouraged to make links with their GP.
We have a wide remit providing assessment and treatment services to people with dementia and those with severe mental health problems and complex physical health needs. We work closely with the wider health community, social care providers and voluntary sector in helping to maintain people’s independence and their mental health.
Community mental health team bases are open, Monday to Friday between 8.45am and 5.15pm
