Community rehabilitation team

We support people experiencing complex psychosis on Pennine Care’s rehabilitation units when you’re ready to be discharged to your own accommodation or a supported community placement.

We will help to make this as smooth as possible and will continue to provide intensive rehabilitation to prevent relapse and readmission to hospital. 

As you move through your rehabilitation, we can help to find less-restrictive placements and levels of support to help you become more independent.

We want you, your family, and carers to be involved in the development of the team so lived experience is at the heart of everything we do.

If you’re in a rehabilitation unit ‘out of area’, we want to support you to return to your original area to be nearer friends and family, whether that’s another rehabilitation unit or to a community placement.

Referrals are made via the clinical pathways team and are usually made by other inpatient health and care professionals. They may also be made by colleagues in the community mental health teams. We don’t accept self-referrals. 

We are a team of different health and care professionals, including nurses, occupational therapists, social inclusion workers, psychologists, support workers and peer support workers.  We will work alongside the community mental health teams and the support that is already available to you.

We can visit up to several times a week. We will work with you to develop care plans which focus on your goals and identify what is important for your recovery.

We offer a range of therapies, occupational therapy, psychology, medication management, and help with social inclusion – getting involved with the wider community.

We can help you get support for your physical health or issues with drugs or alcohol, help you access employment, education and training, and help you take part in leisure or other meaningful activities.

We can also develop your skills to help you with everyday activities and tasks.

We will work with housing providers to find suitable accommodation options for you, and will work with staff in supported housing placements to support you further.
