If you, or the person you care for, are referred to our service, we will support your journey through mental health services. Our team will carry out an assessment and work with you to develop an individual care plan, risk management plan and crisis plan.
A care coordinator may provide interventions directly, or link with other mental health services to support this. Interventions could include:
work or training support
general wellbeing support
We also work closely with GPs, community services, third sector, psychiatric hospitals, and other service providers.
