You can talk to a GP, teacher or social worker about getting an appointment with us - known as making a referral - if you think you need specialist support.
You can also approach us yourself by giving us a call on 0300 304 0050, Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. Our trained mental health staff will talk to you about the issues you are having and how we, or one of our partner organisations, may be able to help.
Alternatively you can fill out a simple referral form and send it back to us. The form asks some questions about you, or the person you are worried about, to help us find out a bit about you and the difficulties you are experiencing. Once we receive this information someone will be in touch to discuss how we may be able to help you.
Because there are lots of people who need our help you may have to wait a short time before you are offered an appointment. We try to see people within four weeks of receiving the referral. How long you have to wait will depend on how many people we’re seeing in your area.
If we can help you we will contact you and ask you to come to see us at one of our clinics for what we call a Choice appointment. If you would prefer to see us somewhere else, like at school, doctor’s surgery, or location that’s easy for you to get to, we can arrange this.
