Mental health resources
We are very aware that the past year has taken its toll on our patients’ mental health, of all ages. We have looked at what is available for adults, young people, people with autism and learning difficulties, people in an abusive relationship and new parents.
As always, if you are having more severe struggles with your mental health, we want to hear from you. We hope that you find the following resources helpful in supporting you too.
Talking therapies including counselling and CBT can be accessed via Insight Healthcare and Trent PTS.
