Community Mental Health

Our community mental health service provides assessment, support and counselling primarily for people under the age of 65 with mental health problems, and their carers.

Most people choose to discuss their referral to the mental health service with their GP although other professionals can make some referrals or you can self-refer. You can refer a friend or family member but only if that person is in agreement with the referral taking place.

You can contact the community mental health teams on the following numbers:
•Forfar/Kirriemuir: 01307 475239
•Arbroath/Carnoustie/Monifieth: 01241 437200
•Brechin/Montrose: 01356 692856

An assessment will be undertaken to determine how quickly you need to be seen. If there are issues regarding safety or medical urgency, these can be responded to on the day of referral. Less serious needs may take a little longer.

This is a confidential service with information only provided to other agencies with the agreement of the service user. However, if there are any concerns raised regarding adults or children at risk appropriate action will be taken to safeguard their needs.
