What is complex mental health?
Complex mental health problems are conditions that involve multiple, interconnected mental health issues. These often require a comprehensive, integrated treatment approach and specialised care involving a team of healthcare professionals. These can include severe and chronic disorders such as personality disorders, substance misuse, trauma, mood and anxiety problems and psychotic disorders. Supporting someone with complex mental health problems can be challenging. We have the experience to provide direct practical support working alongside psychiatrists, psychologists or residential treatment providers.
