Canterbury and Coastal Community Mental Health Team

We provide support and treatment in the community to adults between the ages of 18-65 who are experiencing a mental illness. We provide assessment of their current need and treatment for service users with moderate to severe mental health needs.

The team includes psychiatrists, community mental health nurses, occupational therapists, psychological services and support staff.  We also work in partnership with social care.

Social workers provide assessment under the Care Act 2014 and work with service users who have social care eligibility.

We offer a comprehensive assessment of health and social care needs and signpost service users to the most appropriate service or offer interventions.
