Personality Disorder Hub Team (CNTW)

The Personality Disorder Hub service works with people who experience severe and long-standing personality difficulties and engage in behaviours that place them at a high risk of harm. The team is multi-disciplinary and includes Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists and Psychological Therapists; alongside administrative staff.

“Personality” refers to the individual ways we think, feel and behave. Due to their life experiences, some people can develop difficulties in these areas. If the difficulties are causing great distress, are long-lasting and impact on many aspects of life, then help, (sometimes including input from mental health services), may be needed.

Our service users present with many of the difficulties below:

  • Problems managing emotions
  • Managing urges to act quickly
  • Self-harm and suicidal thoughts
  • Making and keeping healthy relationships
  • Distressing memories about past events

We take referrals from community treatment teams and other CNTW services. We will discuss with you and your team whether we are the best service to meet your needs.
