If you have mental health concerns there’s no harm in asking for help. Asking for help means you’re taking the first step towards wellness. 

You might be tempted to deal with your problems on your own, particularly if you don’t know who to turn to. However, there is a lot of support available so you don’t have to struggle on your own.

We offer mental health support for Selby and the surrounding areas. Why not give us a call? Our phone line is open from 7 pm – 10 pm, 365 days of the year.

Call us on (01757) 642 399. If you call before our phone lines are open and we cannot answer you will be diverted to an NHS Helpline.

Looking For Help

There are many support options available. Some options could be more suited to your needs than others. This is why you should consider looking online for help if you’re not sure about speaking to your doctor just yet. Search for “help with mental health in Selby” or “mental health help near me”, for example. The results page will display information about support groups and charities that potentially could help you. 

Where to Get Help 

There are a number of options available. However, there is no right or wrong way to look for the help you need. The most important thing is that you’re taking the first step to getting and staying well. 

Here are some options you could consider:

  • Speaking to your doctor – Your doctor is there to help you with your mental health concerns. They can diagnose you, offer you treatment if they think you need it (such as medication and/or talking therapies). Your doctor could also refer you to a mental health professional. 
  • A counsellor or therapist – Counsellors and therapists offer a range of therapies. Your doctor could refer you to someone who can help, or ask you to contact them directly. 
  • A charity – Both local and national charities offer support services. 
  • Community mental health services – Community mental health teams could help you. The services offered can be provided by crisis teams. Help such as this is ideal for people who have long-lasting or severe mental health concerns. 

Why Asking for Help Can Be Hard 

Asking for help can be hard, especially when you’re feeling down. The things to remember are you’re not alone, and you deserve to get help.

Asking for help can help you get your life back on track.  Please take that first step, no matter how scary it may seem.
