We are always keen to see anyone with mental health problems and encourage people to come and see us to talk things through. Sometimes this can seem quite daunting for people and this prevents them from finding out what options are available. If you think or know you have mental health problems and would find it difficult talking about it sometimes it is easier to write out what you want to say or bring someone with you who can explain things for you. Sometimes someone who knows you could phone ahead and explain to the doctor what is bothering you to ensure we can understand what you need. There are many services in Cambridge available to help with different aspects of mental health care and there are also lots of resources available on line. Below are some of the websites we recommend:
http://www.nshn.co.uk - information about self harm
http://www.bigwhitewall.com - free for serving military personnel, veterans and their families
The Psychological Wellbeing Service (IAPT) offers treatments across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
