Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust provides community-based and inpatient mental health care and treatment to a population of 1.2 million people living in Bolton, Salford, Trafford and Manchester.

The Trust provides a wide range of more specialised mental health and 'outstanding' substance misuse services across Greater Manchester, the North West of England and beyond. We provide in-reach services to prisons across the north of England and secure mental health services for the North West of England.

We are proud to have one of only three national sites offering specialist mental health care for people who are deaf and an inpatient mother and baby unit that provides perinatal mental health care.

We employ 4750 members of staff, who deliver services from more than 130 locations . Over a 12 month period, we see in the region of 53,000 service users.

Staff at GMMH work to improve lives with a culture based on five core values:

  • We are caring and compassionate
  • We inspire hope
  • We work together
  • We value and respect
  • We are open and honest
