  • 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.
