Mental Health Team

The team consists of a number of mental health professionals, each with different skills. Who you see will depend on the problem you have. The team works closely with the doctors, and has links with hospital based services. The team provides a specialist and confidential service that covers the vast range of problems that can affect a person’s mental health. Access to the team is usually by referral from the doctor.
