Psychosis Community Service (Lewisham - North)

How our service can help you

Our Psychosis Community Services provides care for adults, aged 18-65, who have a psychotic illness. This involves distorted perceptions of reality - thinking, feeling, hearing and seeing - often with symptoms of hallucinations and delusions.

We are available to people who live in the London Borough of Lewisham and already receive treatment for mental illness from one of our other therapy services.

People eligible for our service must be on the Care Programme Approach (CPA). The CPA is for patients who need to see several people or organisations for their mental health care and treatment.

We help people to continue with the improvements they have made with their illness, teaching them the skills to live independently in their community.

We work with a team of health and social care professionals including nurses, doctors, social workers, occupational therapist psychologists. We also work closely with the patients, their carers and GPs, Benefit workers , Social inclusion recovery service (SIRS), Lewisham AMHP service, local day care centres and housing associations and supported living placements as required.

Due to Covid most of our services are now been provided virtually
