Accessing our services

If you feel you need help from any of our services, you should speak to your GP first. They can talk to you in more detail about the support we can give you and can make a referral to our team if you both feel this would be helpful.

improved mental health

Once you access our services we will provide you with initial support and build a plan of care with you to suit your needs.

We will always try to care for you as close to your home as possible, but we understand that there are times when a short stay in hospital may be the best option.

If we feel that other organisations would be better placed to support you, we may signpost you to those services.

How we work with your family, friends and carers

Throughout your care, we hope that your family and the people that support you will be involved, but this is up to you. We will only disclose information to family and carers with your consent or in exceptional circumstances when your safety may be at risk.

We can also provide advice to families or carers to help them support you.

Your local Community Mental Health Team will undertake the assessment.
