Community Mental Health Teams

Our community mental health teams provide care for people recovering from an ongoing mental health problem. They support people to live with a mental health condition. You may be referred to this service if you have, or may have a severe or long-term mental illness. We offer you support in your own home and the community. 

Our teams are part of the Triangle of Care and recommend carers to use the Carer’s Trust.

There are 8 teams covering their own local area. Please contact your local area team for full details of available activities and groups.  

How We Help You

Our Community Mental Health Teams consist of the following skilled staff: 

  • Administrative support staff
  • Community Psychiatric Nurses (CPN)
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychologists
  • Recovery Practitioners
  • Social Workers
  • Support Workers

We offer time limited support using the Care Programme Approach (CPA).  Using the CPA we will help you to develop your own set of planned goals.  We will support you to work towards achieving these.  

Discharge is an integral part of the recovery process.  Where appropriate we provide a Fast Track programme, to support your continued recovery.

All our Community Mental Health Teams work closely with other local mental health services.  Such as the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment teams to prevent relapses.  Our Teams work with the Lincolnshire's Managed Care Network of voluntary and community groups to give people support, structure and choice in their lives.  

We will also work closely with your referrer whilst receiving our services.  We have a dedicated lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) lead.
