Description

If you are feeling anxious, depressed or have other worries about your mental health, you can call the CWIC mental health service.

When you call, an experienced worker will take your details and make an appointment for you to speak to a Mental Health Occupational Therapist or Nurses, who will ring you back at a time that is convenient for you within the next 36 hours.

The practitioner will assess you over the phone, and provide help and support and sometimes a referral on to other services.

This service is not designed for:

  • people already being seen regularly by a Community Mental Health Nurse in the Community Mental Health Team
  • people who are experiencing a mental health emergency — in this case, please phone your GP or see our Get Help Now page for emergency support.
