The South Oxfordshire Adult Mental Health Team (AMHT) is a combined Crisis, Assertive Outreach and CMHT providing intensive and seamless assessment, care and treatment for a wide range of mental health difficulties across South Oxfordshire.
The Team are a positive, creative team giving all staff the opportunity to develop autonomy alongside support and supervision. The Managers are keen for all staff to be offered training to develop their skills, knowledge and confidence and participate in research if interested. The team is highly supportive and committed to delivering a high quality patient and carer journey; where the caseload can be demanding, diverse, frequently complex yet rewarding.
We had a recent successful Away Day where the staff developed their Mission Statement for the AMHT which showed their enthusiasm, passion and enjoyment of the excellent care that the Team provides to patients, their families and carers.
