Mental Health

The Mental Health Duty Team will take referrals for assessments and signpost any concerns to the relevant departments.

What we do

We work in partnership with people who use our services, carers, NHS, third and independent sector organisations to ensure that a range of services are provided to help a recovery process for people with mental health needs. These include:

Creative Support Wolverhampton Mental Health Floating Support Service

Supporting individuals with mental health needs, Wolverhampton Mental Health Floating Support is designed to support individuals to develop daily living skills, to stay safe, be healthy and participate in work, volunteering or social activities. This is with the aim of helping individuals develop and achieve independence and wellbeing.

Positive Action 4 Mental Health (PAMH)

The Positive Action 4 Mental Health Group (PAMH) is a group that meets monthly to improve and influence Mental Health service provision throughout the city of Wolverhampton. 

The group consists of a steering Committee made up of Experts by Experience and supported in our work by the Mental Health Empowerment Team, with opportunities for wider engagement and involvement through our individual and group memberships. There is also a Facebook Groupwww.facebook.com/groups/PA4MH/ and a Twitter address: @MentalHealthWV1

Protecting vulnerable adults

People with mental health issues may be unable to take care of themselves, or protect themselves from harm, abuse or from being exploited. The work that we do is helped by two important pieces of legislation; the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS).
