The Mental Health Liaison Team are a specialist team who work in partnership with the Care Plus Group Intermediate Tier Services providing support for adults (18+) who might be experiencing problems with their mental health.
Mental Health is just like physical health. It can be good or bad and lead to problems that last for a few weeks or ones that need to be managed over a lifetime.
Mental Health is about how we think, feel and behave. One in four people in the UK have a mental health problem at some point in their lives. So, it’s more common than you may think.
At certain times your mental health may be under particular strain – for example when you or a loved one is physically unwell. That’s where we can help.
We work very closely with the Care Plus Group Intermediate Tier team who provide support in the home for people who have been discharged from hospital and need short term health and therapy care to stay in their own home. If one of the team are worried about your mental health, they can quickly and easily contact the Mental Health Liaison Team.
Our service is available Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm.
The service is not suitable for people experiencing acute mental distress that requires an urgent response which would be handled by NAViGO mental health services who are able to respond immediately.
If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, call Single Point of Access on 01472 256 256 (option 3 for mental health) who are available 24/7 and can put you in contact with the crisis mental health team.
