NHS Community Mental Health Service (CMHT)

There are 9 CMHT’s across Northern Ireland, including one in Antrim. The CMHT is made up of a range of mental health professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists and community mental health nurses. They are there to support anyone living with moderate to severe mental illness, and you will need to be referred by your GP. The service can help with an ongoing treatment plan, advise on treatments and managements of conditions, and can work with other agencies to help best support you. They ensure you are at the centre of your mental health care. They provide ongoing support for those living with long term disorders such as Borderline Personality Disorder.
