Our core purpose is to work with people and lead communities in improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing for a better life; through delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.
This section has information and questionnaires to help you decide if a referral is needed, or if self help might be a better option for you. If you have questions for us after reading any of the information on the website, or about completing the referral form, then please see our contact details below:
When you click on the button to self-refer, you will be taken to our secure online referral form. Once we receive your information, our admin team will process your referral and you will hear back from us, usually via post, but please be aware that contact may be via email or phone.
If you are unable to fill in the online form for any reason, you can also call us on 0300 123 0542.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our offices are unstaffed at present, but you will be able to leave your name and contact number on this number by pressing option 3, if you call between the hours of 9am and 4.45pm.
