The Newcastle Adult Community Mental Health Team operates from its main base on the Bradwell Hospital Site which serves an identified catchment area within Newcastle and surrounding areas. Our centre is staffed from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday.

The community mental health teams exist to support clients with identified Mental Health conditions using the CPA process of care delivery. Your role will involve you taking responsibility for a specific client group with nursing and mental health needs, using the CPA process to support this.
