Mental health services


What are mental health services?

Mental health services support and treat people with a mental illness. Mental health care can be provided by your GP, in the community , or in your own home, or in a hospital.

Mental health services are often delivered using a multi-disciplinary approach, calling upon the skills and expertise of a number of different departments and teams.

Our programme to improve mental health care

This programme covers mental health services for adults and older people. We also work together with the children and families programme to improve the transition of young people using mental health services from children to adults, when they turn 18.

The adult mental health programme is supported through the Lambeth Living Well Collaborative. The Collaborative is a partnership platform made up of people who use services, carers, primary care, voluntary services and community services, secondary care, social care, Lambeth CCG and Lambeth Council. The aim is to come together to radically improve the outcomes experienced by people with severe and enduring mental health problems.
