The service is provided in partnership with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust in conjunction with other internal mental health services. The team works closely with service users and carers, their families, primary care services, and other local statutory and non-statutory agencies. The team is multi-disciplinary consisting of a wide range of health and social care professionals supported by administration staff.
The community mental health team aim to provide high quality, responsive and recovery-focused care and support to working age adults. The team provides a specialist service with interventions and care packages which reflect an individual’s own unique needs, promoting diversity inclusion and respect for all people from all sections of society regardless of race, disability, gender, sexual orientation, culture or religion.
All service users will receive a comprehensive assessment of their needs and strengths and will have a plan which sets out the type of care and support required to assist with their recovery. The type of interventions provided will depend on the assessed needs of the service user and take into account evidence based guidance and the requirements of the Care Programme Approach.
The plan will be agreed in conjunction with the service user to promote their recovery and work positively towards their discharge.
