Specialist Community Team - Berkshire Health Foundation Trust

We support young people with complex mental health difficulties. These include eating disorders, severe depression, anxiety disorders that severely limit normal daily functioning, complex trauma, suicidal or significant self-harming behaviours and tic disorders.

There are four specialist community teams (SCTs) in Berkshire: one in the East (which covers Slough, Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead), one in the Reading and one in central Berkshire (which covers Wokingham and Bracknell).

Each of the SCTs comprises psychiatrists, family therapists, clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, specialist nurses and specialist mental health practitioners. Some teams have creative therapists.
