Community Mental Health Teams

We provide a range of community-based mental health services for people who need support for their mental health issues.

If you live in Southampton you will need to contact one of the city's three dedicated Community Mental Health Teams

improved mental health

Hampshire's Community Mental Health Teams offer a range of treatments and therapies to support you in your recovery and you can access Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) services via these teams.

Get access to this service

If you feel that you need support from any of our services, you should speak to your GP first to request a referral. After discussing your needs with your GP, they will make a referral to your local Community Mental Health Team.  The team will go through a thorough assessment with you to make sure that you are signposted to the right services.

How we can help

We want to make sure the treatment and support you receive is tailored to your individual needs. Everyone is different and what works for one person might not work for someone else.

We want you to be able to take much greater control over the way you are treated, and will encourage you to set your own goals, priorities and hopes for the future. We focus on your recovery from illness, rather than just on your treatment. This approach is called the ‘recovery’ principle and runs through all of the work that we do.

Some of the ways we can help include:
  • Prescribing and managing your medication
  • Psychological (talking) therapies
  • Occupational therapy

  • Specialist support for people experiencing psychosis

  • Intensive support for people who have difficulty keeping in contact with their mental health services (assertive outreach)

We also provide support and advice to your families or carers to help them support you (if you’re happy for them to be involved – it’s up to you).

What our service users say:

"I was referred to see a consultant at the Bridge Centre to sort my medication. The appointment came through very quickly. The consultant I saw spent a lot of time with me, truly listened and gave me a number of options for treatment, They were careful to make sure I was comfortable with the decision I made. I felt I was treated with respect and compassion."
