Service List

  1. Perinatal Service

    The Perinatal Mental Health Team is a multidisciplinary mental health service for pregnant and postnatal women with severe and complex mental illness.

    The team aims to prevent, detect and treat perinatal mental health problems. We work to improve the experience of pregnancy and the postpartum period for women and their families, as well as early life experiences for babies.

    Women at risk of relapse in pregnancy and following delivery are assessed early in pregnancy to allow them time to consider the treatment and care options available. The Perinatal Mental Health Team works collaboratively with women, their families and other professionals to plan care during pregnancy and the early postpartum period.

    The Perinatal Mental Health Teams work jointly with adult mental health services already providing care for a woman when she becomes pregnant. We work in partnership with maternity services, children and families’ social services, primary care and other Trust mental health services.

    Our service consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, perinatal nurses, perinatal nursery nurses, midwives, occupational therapists and administrators. The service works with women who cannot be effectively managed in primary care.

  4. Primary Care Mental Health Support Service (Croydon)

    The Primary Care Mental Health Support Service (PCMHSS) works with Croydon adults residents (18-65 years) that have experienced severe and enduring mental illness and have achieved some stability in their recovery that they are ready for transfer to Primary Care. The client group will be motivated to increase self management and independence in preparing for transfer to primary care. The PCMHSS works in collaboration with the patients, carers/family and their GP practices towards full transfer from secondary mental health service to Primary Care. Our team brings together mental health practitioners including a psychiatrist that will support the transfer process.

    Patients accepted into the PCMHSS will meet certain criteria e.g. their mental health (mainly psychosis) and social situation is stable, and the prescribed medication can be managed by the doctor's surgery.

    Patients will be transferred from the service, to primary care, following a formal multi-disciplinary review with the prescribing GP, practice staff and our service.

    In the event of needing input from secondary service, the referral process will be the same as it is now for all.
