Adult Locality Mental Health Team (ALMHT)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) service update

Face-to-face drop-in sessions are currently restarted. Please keep watching this space for any updates we make.

Who we are

The Council’s Adult Locality Mental Health Team (ALMHT) aims to prevent deterioration in the mental health of Hounslow residents, increase the wellbeing of communities and support the recovery of residents with long-term mental illness. 

The team is made up of mental health social care professionals who undertake individual casework and community development aiming to reduce isolation, promote independence and mental wellbeing.

What we do

Under the umbrella of recovery and prevention, Adult Locality Menta Health Team workers base themselves in local community spaces – this is to engage individuals who would not usually seek support for their mental health needs and/or who would wait for a crisis in their emotional wellbeing before seeking help. 

This model is based on the belief that the residents of Hounslow deserve access to the support they require at a time that is right for them, in a place that is convenient for them.  Having a visible presence in local community spaces also serves to promote emotional wellbeing for both individuals and communities, as well as to reduce stigma, discrimination, and isolation.

The ALMHT works alongside health colleagues in  Primary and Secondary Care as well as other stakeholders to link individuals with community support that maintains mental wellness, prevents or delays the development of social care needs that require a formal social support intervention. The ALMHT also is closely aligned to the Hounslow MINT (Mental Health Integrated Network Teams) provided by West London Mental Health NHS Trust.

Where we are and how to get help

Whilst our main base is at London Borough of Hounslow, Hounslow House, we have ‘Healthy Minds’ drop-ins currently up and running where residents are welcome to see a mental health professional:

Adult residents are welcome to attend any of our ‘Healthy Minds’ drop-ins when they are worried about their own, or someone else’s, mental health. No appointment is necessary, however, should you wish to let us know about your visit to one of the drop-ins in advance, please fill out the online form below.
