Feeling down? Stressed out? Overwhelmed? Anxious?
Mental Health Link Worker
Each GP surgery has a clinical link worker. They are mental health specialists and have a great deal of knowledge about mental health care and the resources available locally to assist your mental health & wellbeing. This might be particularly helpful if you are not sure about the best way forward for you. You can access this service if you over 18. You can self-refer to your link worker via your GP appointment booking system or your GP can refer you.
