Community Mental Health Team
Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs) are a community based assessment and treatment service for people suffering mental health problems who are over the age of 18.
If you have a mental health problem which hasn’t been addressed by counselling or which is more complicated, your GP may refer you to a community mental health team. The CMHT will help you to manage any changes in your behaviour, feelings and thinking. This could include helping you to work out solutions to your current problems, developing your strengths and providing support so you become more independent.
Treatment may be on a one to one basis, in a group or could be with family and friends. Appointments with the CMHT can take place at home or in a community setting like your GP practice.
