Affective Disorder (Community Intervention Teams)

Affective disorder is a general term used to describe a range of difficulties relating to the way an individual feels, thinks and behaves.

The affective disorders community intervention teams help people (aged 18 to 65 years) with various mental health issues including anxiety, depression, mood disorders and personality problems. They can also work with the individual's family or carers.

We aim to offer a range of support with an emphasis on helping the individual to recover.

We review the needs of each individual and agree a care plan to help promote mental well being.

The care coordinator/lead profession will work with you, to help you access therapy or therapies and offer any support they may need to regain your best level of mental health as soon as is possible.

This will then help you to be discharged from the service and allow you to return to living a productive and fulfilling life.
