Our community teams are dedicated to helping people with severe or enduring mental ill-health back on the road to recovery.
Our teams of health and social care professionals include people from different disciplines including doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers and therapists - including arts therapists, physios and psychotherapists.
We also work with a host of different community organisations both in the statutory, independent and voluntary sector to provide you with a comprehensive package of treatment and support. We are open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm. If you would like to be referred to this service, please contact your GP who will assess your suitability and refer you to us if it is appropriate.

We specialise in helping people who have a diagnosis of bi-polar disorder or schizophrenia, either alone or with a combination of different disorders, to engage with professional mental health services.
The team includes consultant psychiatrists, psychologists, social inclusion workers, social workers and occupational therapists.
These professionals work together to offer people who have a history of not engaging with services or refusing treatment more intensive support to help them on the road to recovery.
This includes more one-to-one contact with their care co-ordinator than someone being seen by a Community Mental Health Recovery Service; plus a bespoke care package and extra help to live within the community such as support for GP visits, help with keeping to medication.
We also run support groups to help people manage their condition, stay physically active and pursue creative or vocational interests.
These services provide day therapy services to promote recovery from mental ill-health and ongoing mental wellbeing afterwards. They work with partners in other public, private and voluntary sectors to provide an extensive package of support.
