Mental health and wellbeing

Our mental health is important.

Many factors influence our wellbeing and evidence shows that the actions we take and the way we think have a big impact.

Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 people in their lifetime, some mental health problems such as depression and anxiety are common conditions.

If you have such an illness, it is important to learn more about your mental health and to get the right treatment and support.

Many people who experience problems will be provided with care and treatment from primary care services, however, in some circumstances, care, treatment and interventions from secondary care mental health services may be required.

The Mental Health Service aims to ensure that people are provided with services in the right place, at the right time with the right results.

We aim to:

  • Support recovery from mental health problems

  • Promote wellbeing in the community we serve

  • Encourage and promote service users and carers in care planning and delivery

  • Ensure everyone under our care and working with us will be treated with respect and dignity 

In the first instance we recommend that talking with your GP is a positive step. 

If further support or treatment is required they will refer you to the Mental Health Service for further consultation. 

The Mental Health Service offers support to adults, children and young people and also delivers group-based sessions and activities to assist with the recovery of people experiencing mental health problems.
