We are a specialist team, which has staff with a range of skills to support older people. The team includes:
We will work with you to help you manage your mental health and physical health needs. We will also help and support your carers if appropriate. We do this by offering a number of evidence-based treatments, including:
Your first contact with us will normally be because your GP has referred you to mental health services for an assessment because he or she thinks that you would benefit from the care and treatment that our service is able to provide.
We will contact you by telephone or letter to offer you an appointment. You can bring a member of your family, a carer or a friend to the appointment if you want for support. If you need ongoing support from the CMHT then you may be allocated a care coordinator. This person will be your main point of contact but others from the team may meet you too. Your care coordinator will be responsible for organising your care.
