A team of approved social workers to offer advice and support to those affected by mental health issues.
Mental health, like physical health, can involve a range of difficulties and complaints, from relatively mild conditions, to more severe illness.
Many people with mental health problems will not need a psychiatrist, as GPs can usually provide support and medication.
However, if a person's issues are more complicated then a GP may refer to the Adult Mental Health team. The team consists of social workers and approved social workers who may be able to work with a person and other professionals to offer advice and support around the following areas:
Money and benefits
Emotional and relationship problems
Working and doing something positive throughout the day
How to get support from the Adult Mental Health team
Anyone can contact the team for advice on 0191 424 4335.
