South West Kent Community Adult Mental Health Service

We provide services to people aged 16 years and over.

Your referral will be screened by a duty worker who will decide if you require an assessment and how urgent an assessment is required. If offered an assessment you will be contacted by a member of the admin team to arrange a mutually agreeable time. Please ensure your GP has the correct contact details for you.

After the assessment you will be informed of the outcome. This could be short term interventions with a care plan to agree to meet your needs from the team, or advice on where to get support for your current issues.


You can be referred by your GP or by contacting the Intake Team directly on 01622 725000. Please discuss any referral with your GP to ensure that you are being referred to the correct service.


Adult whose mental health needs meet Cluster 4 and above or whose social care needs must be addressed.
