Bury community mental health service

We provide support for people aged 16 to 65, with severe and enduring mental health problems and complex needs, who present significant levels of risk to themselves or others.
This includes people with severe and complex:
  • Symptoms of depression
  • Symptoms of anxiety
  • Psychological difficulties, including personality disorder
  • Psycho-social needs
Psychotic symptoms

We are a multi-disciplinary service made up of managers, community mental health nurses, mental health social workers (some qualified as AMHPs), occupational therapists, community support workers, admin support, secondary care psychological therapies and Consultant Psychiatrists who work with the team.

The service is made up of five key functions:

  • Assessment
  • Active care coordination
  • Treatment
  • Reviewing officer
  • Wellness and recovery

You will have an identified care coordinator or key worker dependent upon your level of need.

This practitioner will be responsible for supporting you to develop a care plan to meet your needs, following a comprehensive assessment.

They will also be responsible for regularly reviewing the care plan and supporting you to prepare for discharge from the service, as and when appropriate.
