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.
"Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. The experience will be different for each of us, as will the type of support we need.
But what mental health services are there? And how do they fit in with other health and public services?" Watch the King's Fund's helpful animation to find out more - just click on the picture.

Our vision is to work with service users, carers and key stakeholders to develop a range of services and support networks that ensure that individuals are empowered to live as optimum 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 able to be supported to remain within their home environment.
