We offer a wide range of support, from computerised therapy to one-to-one intervention, as everyone's needs and preferences are different.
Your first contact with the team is likely to be with one of our administrators, who will book you in for a telephone assessment with one of our Mental Health Practitioners. Please see the video below to find out more about what this involves. We try to offer this first appointment within four weeks of you first contacting the team.
The support on offer will focus on helping you move forward and will concentrate on steps that you can take yourself to tackle your difficulties. This can include many different options, from sign-posting to other agencies, to the support we offer directly.
All personal information provided to the Trust is treated confidentially. There are, however, some important times when we will need to share information with others as part of your care. It is the responsibility of all health professionals to share some information with your GP and possibly other health care professionals. This is particularly important if there is information which would help to prevent you from harming yourself or someone else. All information is treated confidentially and the Mental Health Practitioner will check anything with you which they think would be useful to share with other staff.
