Adult Mental Health Services (Local)

The Community Forensic Service Croydon provides community-based assessment, treatment and care for people, aged 18-65, who have severe mental health problems and who may be a risk to themselves and others. They may also be subject to Home Office restrictions, Probation Orders or have judicial proceedings outstanding.
We provide care for people who live in the London Borough of Croydon.

A Forensic Community Team provides care for people with offending histories who, with appropriate care and treatment, pose a low risk to the public. The teams of health and social care professionals work with the police, public protection unit and the local Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangement (MAPPA) team to manage people in the community.

Service Definitions

Most of the treatment available under the National Health Service (NHS) is free, but there are some things for which some older people may have to pay part, all or part of the cost of, such as dental care and glasses. If you are on Income Support, Pension Credit or have Certificate HC2 or HC3, which means you can apply for a low income entitlement, most of these services will be free or subsidised. If you are on Pension Credit you will automatically qualify for help with the cost of travelling to and from hospital for NHS treatment. You may also get help towards these costs if you have a certificate HC2 or HC3 on grounds of low income. For further information contact the Benefits Agency or Age Concern Croydon.
