Multi-Disciplinary Teams (MDT)

Multi-Disciplinary Teams (MDT)

A multidisciplinary team is a unique solution to the complexities of long term recovery. A team will typically be made up of you, people in your immediate circle important in your recovery and the professionals who provide support. Each team that is built is specific to your needs and circumstances. And the makeup of your team will change as your needs do.

 

There is no fixed solution or right answer to questions of long term recovery and management of mental illness or addiction. Different solutions will be appropriate to different circumstances. For you, being part of a multi-disciplinary team which supports you with the right input at the right time can be the difference between being in control of their condition or not. Communication and information in a well functioning team are at their optimum. What’s more, a well functioning team is much more fun to work in!

 

Each team is managed for you by us until you feel ready to manage it yourself and it produces a helpful plan (care plan) with you that says who does what and when and why

 

This approach was developed in the UK statutory health services and has been evidenced to provide best outcomes long term for complex and chronic conditions. For more info and links
