The Clondalkin Mental Health Team provides specialist mental health services to people living in the Clondalkin area. We work in partnership with local GPs, Adelaide & Meath Hospital incorporating the National Children’s Hospital (AMNCH) and other local health care, social and rehabilitations services.
We run many different types of services. Providing assessment and treatment in different ways depending on what the problem is and how severe or complicated it is. It’s normal for people to move from one service to another depending on what difficulties they need to address at the time.
Group Programmes often involve regular meetings, classes and activities. They’re usually held once a week for a set period in a group setting with people in a similar situation. They deal with particular problems that the group have in common such as difficulties with anxiety, difficulties socialising or relapse prevention.
Therapies involve you working regularly with a therapist or key worker over a number of weeks on a particular problem. They can help you identify patterns in how you think and behave, learn new skills and strategies and discuss ideas to manage your mental health better. Just as there are many different mental health problems here are many different types or techniques of therapy.
