The Treatment and Recovery teams provide support for people with severe and enduring mental health problems who need more intensive support to recover and remain well in the community. We see adults aged 18 and over.
We can help to sort out what areas you need help with, keep an eye on how you are, develop your strengths; work to find answers to your current problems and help you to recover.
We offer a wide range of services, including community-based groups, individual support and counselling, occupational therapies, social work interventions, out-patient clinics and a variety of therapeutic interventions to meet individual needs.
Recovery teams work closely with our assessment and community inpatient services, as well as GPs, voluntary organisations and other partners to help people to remain in the community as far as possible and to ease the transition back into normal life.
Severe or enduring mental health problems are ones which have a major impact on your ability to cope in everyday living due to a mental disturbance that is not primarily due to alcohol, drugs or organic illness.
Support for carers
If you care for someone who has a mental health problem, you are also entitled to an assessment of your needs, which is reviewed periodically.
If you have not had a carer's assessment, speak to the care coordinator or another member of staff.
Accessing the service
People are referred to recovery teams from the assessment service or other parts of the trust.
If you are worried about your mental health, you should first speak to your GP (family doctor).
