The Sheffield Primary and Community Mental Health Transformation Programme is a new way of delivering services for adults and older adults with serious mental illnesses, in places near to their homes. We also want to provide support at the earliest possible stage, to prevent against deteriorating mental health.

The service is delivered by a multidisciplinary team of clinical psychologists and psychosocial practitioners, occupational therapists, mental health pharmacists, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) therapists, primary care mental health practitioners, health coaches and Sheffield Mind's Community Connectors, as well as voluntary sector organisations, who offer additional support and activities.

Our Community Connectors work with these colleagues in the Primary Care Networks (PCN's) to ensure that people with severe mental illness get the most appropriate local support - and they support individuals to feel more able to use and be part of their local community. Working from our Wellbeing Centre and in their local PCN, they are helping people to access wider community support, by working with them to remove any barriers that might otherwise prevent them from making the most of that support.

The programme is expanding into more PCNs from April 2022, but here are the areas we're currently working in:
