There are a lot of services available to support people with mental health issues.
All our doctors are trained to help people suffering from mental health problems. Making an appointment is a good place to start if you are looking for help.
Even if you are seeking support from the hospital, you shall be invited in for an Annual Health Check with a Health Care Assistant, followed by an appointment with a GP a few weeks later.
There are also lots of other services locally that are there to support you, many of whom you can refer yourself to.
Services for adults
- If you are aged 17 or older then a good place to start is the Mindwell website. It is designed to help you understand the common problems that people face and the range of services here to help. It also offers help to those who are worried about others.
- You might have heard your GP or friend talk about IAPT. This is a range of services that we commonly refer our patients to when they have problems with mental health. Here is a list of what IAPT offer, you can also refer yourself to this service from their website.
