Supporting people with mental health needs

If you have a mental health problem (such as anxiety or mild depression) that affects your day-to-day life, we can help you.

  • Work out your social care needs and see if our services are suitable for you

  • Refer you to organisations that can help with housing or benefits
  • Tell you about useful voluntary organisations
  • Put you in touch with support groups
