Our Enhanced Community Mental Health Teams for Older Adults give community support to people over 65 years of age who have many kinds of mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, hearing voices, and dementia.

We have four teams that cover Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

When we feel that someone would benefit from our service, we meet with them to find out their mental health needs. Based on this meeting we make a treatment plan, which outlines the support we can provide. The treatment plan can be changed to fit as time goes on.

Our aim is to give people the support to live well in the community. We can help people with their medication and give advice on how someone can manage their own mental health needs. We can support someone to carry on with parts of their daily living like self-care, home tasks, and leisure activities. We give one-on-one talking therapy sessions for such things as anxiety management and depression. We are also able to monitor and support patients with enduring mental health problems such as psychosis.
We normally spend time with people in their own homes for one-on-one sessions and support access to group work.

Within our operating hours we provide a crisis and home treatment service, 7 days a week for patients within our service.

What about carers and families?

Also, part of our role is to support carers. Where there is an acute mental health issue, we offer carer support as part of the treatment plan. When someone’s mental health is stable and the carer is in need of continued support, we can help the carer get in touch with the specialist carer support team for older adults

The team

Working in our teams we have community psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, occupational therapy technical instructors, and support and recovery time workers. We also work closely with consultant psychiatrists and their medical teams which means we are more able to meet someone’s needs.

You can refer via your GP or through a mental health professional. All referrals are screened and triaged with appropriate support provided based on the indidual's presenting need.
