The team at LRMC consists of three experienced Registered Mental Health Nurses. They provide an assessment and treatment service for adults of 18 years and over at primary care level, for people with mild, moderate and enduring mental health issues.
There are good links with the High Intensity Psychological Therapy team based at Bridport into which patients may be referred.
The team also has strong links with the Secondary Mental Health teams for adults of working age and older people. These Secondary Mental Health teams are based in Bridport and Dorchester.
Referrals into the team come via GP’s, other health professionals and Secondary Mental Health teams.
If you are offered an appointment the meeting will usually take place at any one of the GP surgeries in Lyme Regis or Charmouth. You will be asked about your current issues regarding mental health, history and general situation. On completion of an initial assessment a plan of care will be agreed as necessary using 1:1 interventions alongside self-help materials.
