Referrals received by Health in Mind each year

Are you OK?

The symptoms of anxiety or low mood are not easy to spot.

If you can relate to any of these statements, it might be time to get in touch with us.

How do I know if I need help?

Of the thousands of referrals we receive each year, many are from people who don’t know what is wrong. They only know that their life is not enjoyable.

We often find people have waited several months or even longer before making contact. We encourage people to identify symptoms and make a referral sooner. Tackling issues at an earlier stages means quicker access to treatment and can prevent symptoms worsening.

We know it takes courage to talk with someone about how you’re feeling. We offer a safe space where you can do that.

Take a quiz and find out for yourself...

The NHS has developed an anonymous Mood Assessment Quiz which can help identify if you would benefit from a service like ours. We use similar questions when we work with you to find out how you are doing and monitor this over time.

At the end of the quiz you will be given a total of your scores. Even if you are scoring very low (0-5) but you feel that you’re struggling we’d encourage you to get in touch.

You can speak to your GP but you can also contact us directly by completing a self referral form here.

COVID-19 Changes

In response to the COVID-19 crisis the Health in Mind service has had to make some changes to how we do things.

If you make a referral, we will be in contact to let you know what we are able to offer. Our website will be updated regularly on this dedicated COVID-19 page 

You don't need to know what option might be best. Our trained professionals will work with you to identify and agree whats going to be best for your situation. But here are some of the things we do...
