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.
