The Primary Care and Mental Health Wellbeing Service is run by Health & Social Services Department and based in GP Surgeries and community settings. This is a free service for people with mild to moderate mental health symptoms.

To be referred to the service contact your GP.

How the service works

Following your referral to the service, a mental health professional will contact you and arrange to meet at a GP surgery. At the first meeting with your wellbeing practitioner they will work with you to understand what the problem is and agree the next steps. They will match your needs to an appropriate service. It is likely that you will be offered between one and eight therapy sessions, possibly more if required. All the approaches offered by the Primary Care Mental Health & Wellbeing service follow evidence-based guidelines for the most effective treatments for anxiety and/or depression.
