Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs) are multi-disciplinary assessment teams which provide mental health care and treatment for those adults with more complex and enduring mental health needs, who can benefit from specialist support. The CMHTs also provide treatment and care for those with time-limited disorders who, it is felt, may benefit from specialist support. The teams provide care and treatment to people in the community who are experiencing mental health difficulties, promoting positive mental health and independence. This ensures improved access to appropriate support services and resources, supporting timely discharge from hospital and reducing the need for hospital admission.
