How our service can help you
Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs) provide care and treatment for people with serious mental health difficulties, including but not limited to psychotic illnesses, mood and personality disorders, and other disorders.
Southwark has four Community Mental Health Teams covering different parts of Southwark:
- Borough, Bermondsey and Rotherhithe
- Camberwell and Peckham
- Dulwich and Nunhead
Referrals to the CMHT should be made via the Primary Care Mental Health Team for South Southwark. People will be allocated to a community mental health team based on where their GP practice is, or if they don’t have a GP, we will use their address to find their nearest CMHT. We are a multi-disciplinary service with range of professionals including social workers, nurses, doctors, psychologists, occupational therapists and specialist workers providing employment support, benefits advice and social inclusion.
We provide a broad range of medical, psychological and social treatments and interventions. We work closely with acute and crisis services, and mental health services in primary care to ensure that service users receive the right care at the right time.
