Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs) - CPA
What is the Care Programme Approach (CPA)?
You may be put under the Care Programme Approach (CPA) if your team thinks that you have complex needs and you need ongoing support. The CPA is the framework that organises your mental health care.
If you are on a CPA you should get a care plan and regular reviews. You should get a care coordinator who will be responsible for your care and support. A care coordinator can be a social worker or community psychiatric nurse (CPN). You can still get support from a mental health team even if you are not under CPA.
