Mental Health Services for Older People in Tonbridge and Malling

Community Mental Health Teams for Older People

Community Mental Health Teams for Older People(CMHTOP) provide a single point of entry to a number of mental health services to older adults. We also provide services to any individual with a diagnosis of dementia including adults under 65.

Referrals to the teams are made mainly through GPs and social services but some teams also accept self-referrals.

The teams assess a patients' needs and then offer appropriate services, including memory clinics for dementia, psychology services, day therapy services and outpatient clinics.

The teams include nurses, occupational therapists, consultants and administrative staff.
