Community Assessment Recovery Service

The Community Assessment and Recovery Service (CARS) is an exciting redesign of our services which now offers a recovery focused provision to adults who are experiencing a more serious mental illness. CARS was previously known as Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs).

CARS provides the opportunity for us to work together during your recovery when you may need more support than is available from the Wellbeing Hub or Worcestershire Healthy Minds. The ethos of our whole service is recovery, and enabling people to access the appropriate level of support. The team includes Nurses, Social Workers, Support Workers, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists and people with lived experience of mental illness such as Peer Support Workers. You could also benefit from our Employment and Vocational Specialist Team who have received national accreditation for their exemplary work.

If you are appropriate for intervention from CARS, our staff will offer you appropriate support to help you maximise your potential for sustained well-being and if required plan with you your progression to other services to continue your recovery, such as Healthy Minds or your GP.
