Neighbourhood Mental Health Teams
New local Neighbourhood Mental Health Teams have launched in Herefordshire and Worcestershire as part of a national pilot to improve community mental health care.
The teams are made up of specialist mental health practitioners, local GPs and representatives from the voluntary and community sector and they will be adopting a new approach to supporting people with complex mental health difficulties outside of a hospital or mental health unit.
The teams have been set up as part of a national pilot and cover all of Herefordshire and Malvern, Wyre Forest and ‘the rurals’ area of Worcestershire – Martley, Knightwick, Great Witley and Tenbury. Alongside the other pilot areas, the learning will be used to help transform mental health services across the country.
