Primary Care Mental Health Worker
Primary Care Mental Health Workers offer a patient centred service that aims to help people understand their difficulties and feelings. They do this by:

  • Discussing concerns people have about their current situation
  • Working with individuals using cognitive behavioural techniques
  • Providing problem solving support
  • Offering facilitated self-help information
  • Signposting people to useful agencies and services available
  • Regular contact often on the telephone

If you are experiencing anxiety, panic, stress, depression, despair, lack of motivation or interest in day to day activities then a Primary Care Mental Health Worker is available to assist and help you overcome these problems. Please make an appointment with your usual Doctor who will decide if a referral to this service is appropriate for you.

N.B. Appointments with the Mental Health Worker can only be made with a referral from the Doctor.
