How do I know if I need help?
Of the thousands of referrals we receive each year, many are from people who don’t know what is wrong. They only know that their life is not enjoyable.
We often find people have waited several months or even longer before making contact. We encourage people to identify symptoms and make a referral sooner. Tackling issues at an earlier stage means quicker access to treatment and can prevent symptoms from worsening.
We know it takes courage to talk with someone about how you’re feeling. We offer a safe space where you can do that.
