If you are looking for mental health support you’ll be pleased to know there are a lot of communities, groups, and charities who can help you.

If you call before our phone lines are open and we cannot answer you will be diverted to an NHS Helpline.

So where can you find the best mental health help Barlby, has, for example? read on for a few ideas:

 

Friends and Family 

If you are struggling with your mental health, you might want to talk to your friends or family. 

The people who love you the most could be more than happy to talk with you. Sometimes sharing your concerns can feel as if you’ve had a weight lifted off your shoulders.

It’s not always easy talking about how you’re feeling. However, you may find that talking to someone really helps.

 

Online 

These days you can find many online groups and communities that offer mental health support or assessment

Online groups and communities can help you to meet like-minded people who are experiencing the same mental health difficulties. 

Talking to people online can occasionally be easier than talking to a friend or family member. There’s a sense of anonymity which can help if you find it hard to talk.

Most people in online communities and groups are happy to talk to others and share their experiences and advice. 

Those who are already receiving support can talk about the groups and communities that helped them. This could prove useful to you. 

A Counsellor or Therapist

Counsellors and therapists offer different types of therapies. This is done via the NHS through a GP referral.

Occasionally, you might be asked to contact the counsellor or therapist directly. 

 

The NHS

The NHS website is full to the brim of useful information so you might want to take a look.

If you’re very concerned about your mental health you can call 111 now. 

 

Community Mental Health Support Services

Community mental health teams might be able to offer you help.

Services such as this and those provided by crises teams can help those who have long-lasting or severe mental health problems.
