NHS Community Mental Health Teams
There are four Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT) in Sheffield which provide a service for people with mental health problems. The types of condition treated include psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, severe depression, anxiety, personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Referrals are accepted from GPs or other clinical teams within Sheffield Health & Social Care NHS Foundation Trust. Referrals may also be accepted from other health or social care professionals, housing, voluntary sector, families and self-referral.
Each of the Community Mental Health Teams consists of :
Access Team: This team is responsible for referrals and initial assessments, and also short-term work aimed at reducing the need for long-term involvement from services.
Recovery Team: This team works with people who have severe or complex mental health needs and are likely to require input over the longer term.
Home Treatment Team: This team provides intensive, short-term interventions for people who may otherwise require hospital admission. They also take referrals from adult acute in-patient services.
Out of Hours Team: This team fulfills the Access Team and Home Treatment Team functions out-of-hours. The team operates 7 days a week 7.30pm - 7.30am and can be contacted via the 24-hour switchboard on 0114 271 6310.
