Hi I'd like to know what CMHTs are like in Glasgow as I may be moving there soon.
Hah, sure I know what you're saying.I would like some people's experiences though too, because I'm not too sure about trusting the trust's info/stats
HI Jade, just happened to see your question whilst browsing. I work in a cmht in glasgow and so will have a slightly different perspective from some service users, but I can give you some basic info if that helps. Cmhts in Glasgow are based in resource centres covering specific catchment areas, so your address in glasgow would automatically determine which one you would be referred to. ideally, if you are already involved with mental health services elsewhere it would be best to ask your key worker/ psychiatrist for a direct referral to the appropriate team (if you know which post code you will be living in, I can find this out for you). This way, your new team can access the information they need to plan your care. Otherwise, it's a case of going to your gp in glasgow and if they agree it's necessary they will make the referral. We also have primary care mental health teams in glasgow which sit between gps and cmhts and see people with mild/moderate mental health problems eg. Milder depression/ anxiety, etc. you can self refer to these and they can offer specific psychological therapies. Within cmhts you may initially see a CPN, OT, Psychiatrist or Social worker depending on the nature of the problem. If necessary other disciplines can become involved thereafter once your specific needs have been clarified. They can also flag up other resources in the community which may be helpful and can link in with other agencies if necessary. Let me know if you need any more info. Hope all goes well if you do go ahead with the move.Hi I'd like to know what CMHTs are like in Glasgow as I may be moving there soon.
