Reading’s Mental Health Social Care team supports adults living in Reading with mental health issues, who have care and support needs. They support people in the community whether they have just become ill, have a short-term illness or need on-going support, giving practical help with a person’s social care needs alongside their mental health needs.

This might be to help people after they have been discharged from hospital, help to manage risks, or help with practical issues like housing and financial problems. They also provide general support and advice to people and their carers.

Make a referral

A new referral process into Reading’s mental health social care team has been trialled since August 2018. It means you can refer yourself, or someone else, directly to the team.

To make a referral, phone the Mental Health Social Care Team on 0118 937 3747.
