Mental Health Support
We want to make sure our community have access to support for their mental health when they need it. One of the ways our PCN is helping support our patients with their mental health is by investing in a Mental Health Worker that patients can access at their own GP surgery. You can book thris through your reception team.
We also work in partnership wth local charities and agencies who help support those in our community who may be suffering with poor mental health and we've included many of them below. Many of our team have used these resources in the past so we really are recommending tried and tested services to you.
It can happen to anyone and its important that we can all get the help we need when we need it. There's lots of avenues for support locally so we wanted to use this page to share these local contacts with you if you or someone you know is suffering with poor mental health at the moment.
