Adult Mental Health

The Adult Mental Health Service consists of multi-disciplinary teams providing both community and inpatient care. Many of these services are provided in collaboration with partner agencies, both statutory and non-statutory.

Our vision is to work with service users, carers, and key stakeholders to develop a range of services and support networks that ensures individuals are empowered to live as optimal a life as possible.

We believe services should be as close to home as possible and indeed, in the majority of cases, people will be supported to remain within their home environment.
