Adult Community Mental Health Services (ACMHS)

Our Adult Community Mental Health Services are delivered from hub sites across Hertfordshire using a bespoke model of personalised care and support planning. They provide service users with primary care and specialist mental health services that assist with all aspects of their health and wellbeing.

Our range of community services covers the following areas:

You’ll be joining a truly multidisciplinary team, working with doctors, social workers, employment specialists, dramatherapists, community nurses and many others. Together, we work to support each other, our service users and their carers through effective, joined up care practices.

We also offer a range of apprenticeships across a number of specialisms and pathways, providing ample professional development opportunities.

We’re proud of the fact that we’re one of the few fully integrated NHS mental health trusts, providing both health and social care duties to adults with lived experience of mental health challenges in the community. In Hertfordshire, social care is delivered using the Connected Lives assessment model and underpinned by core concepts of the Care Act.

By placing emphasis on prevention and enablement, we support service users to live the life they want, encouraging them to develop their skills and be active citizens. Taking a strengths-based approach means that everyone is able to achieve their own defined goals. This refreshing approach is less about form filling and more about empowering our teams to use their skills and judgement to help adults really live.
