Our Teams:

Often considered to be the 'front-door' to our adult's mental health services, our ATS teams are crucial in providing the best multi-disciplinary care possible to our communities as they enter our services.

We assess people who are experiencing complex mental health problems in order to collaboratively plan care and treatment. This may be a specific therapy or longer-term care where a named practitioner will support service users through their recovery journey.

Our values are aligned with the National Framework for Community Mental Health and the SPFT organisational strategy, particularly amplifying collaboration and seamless working, and planning for care across Brighton and the wider trust.
