Coronavirus (COVID-19) service update

Face-to-face drop-in sessions are currently suspended. The Team is still available to offer support to anyone with social care needs suffering with and experiencing mental health difficulties by telephone on 020 8583 3003 (Ext.1) or by email.

 

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 is made up of mental health social care professionals who undertake individual case work 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  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 work alongside health colleagues in Primary and Secondary Care as well as other stakeholders to link individuals with community support that maintain 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 Primary Care Mental Health Service (PCMHS) provided by West London Mental Health NHS Trust.
