Mental Health Administration

Each Community Mental Health Team has one administrator assigned to their team, whose aim is to provide a service of the highest quality to you, while respecting your privacy, dignity and confidentiality.

The role of the CMHT administrator is essential to the smooth operation of the team and includes:

  • serving as the first point of contact for you when you access the Community Mental Health Team services
  • processing your referral in consultation with the consultants and other Community Mental Health Team members
  • management of waiting lists and outpatient clinics
  • ensuring your clinical records are adequately maintained

The Community Mental Health Team administrator facilitates the effective day to day operation of the Community Mental Health Team by providing administrative support to the team members, organising team meetings and communicating relevant clinical matters and team activities to all team members. They regularly liaise with GPs and primary care professionals, local community agencies and community resources in relation to the services provided by the team.
