Our Adults Community Mental Health Teams, also known as Assessment and Treatment Service's (ATS's) are mainly located in bigger towns. We are the entry point into specialist mental health services.

We assess people who are suspected to be suffering from mental health problems in order to decide what care is best for them. This may be a specific therapy or longer-term care where a ‘care coordinator’ will support service users through their recovery journey.

Often considered to be among the most important teams within our adult's mental health services, our ATS teams are crucial in providing the best care possible to our communities as they enter our services.

Teamwork is at the very centre of how our Adults Community Mental Health Teams operate, as we have to work in close partnership with almost every other team in the Trust and with partner organisations. We are true 'Multi-Disciplinary Teams' (MDT's) as we consist of:

  • Registered Mental Health Nurses,
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Social Workers
  • Psychologists
  • Healthcare Support Workers
  • Psychiatrists
  • Administrators
  • And more…
