Improving Adult Community Mental Health Services in Manchester

21 Oct 2011 - 11:29 by michelle.foster

The Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust provide a range of mental health, wellbeing, social care and public health services to the people of Manchester. These range of services are provided to 10,500 people each year through their community mental health services, inpatient and outpatient services. Like all other health trusts The Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust need to show that they are delivering high quality care to the people who use their services in a way that gives real value for money.

The Trust are focused on recovery and helping service users to identify and achieve their own goals for this. Recovery underpins all that the Trust does and the vast majority of the adults that are cared for remain in the community, supported by dedicated Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs). The CMHTs work in conjunction with people to enable them to continue managing their mental health in their own homes, perhaps with additional support from the outpatient, day services or other teams.

The Trust are currently reviewing their Community Mental Health Teams for adults (people aged under 65) to improve what they do and their Improving Adult Community Mental Health Services in Manchester document explains how they will do it and what will be achieved.

The document outlines:
• How they are telling people about these changes
• How they plan to provide Adult CMHS to meet the population of the City of Manchester’s identified mental health needs in the future
• The benefits for service users and carers
• The benefits for healthcare providers including staff, as well as the local GP population
• What this means financially

To read the document, see below.
