Dartford Gravesham and Swanley Community Mental Health Team

Dartford, Gravesend and Swanley Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) provides support and treatment in the community to adults between the ages of 18-65 who are experiencing a mental illness.

The team provides an assessment of an individual’s current needs and provides treatment for service users with moderate to severe mental health needs. This includes a comprehensive assessment of mental health needs and, where required, we will work alongside our social care colleagues in Kent County Council and other external partners within the health care system.  

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