Mental Health Support for when you are Struggling:
If you, or a friend or relative are experiencing mental health problems and need treatment or advice during office hours, then you should contact your GP. Your GP is your family doctor, the doctor you would normally see if you are ill or concerned about any other aspect of your health. They will be able to understand your health concerns and advise you on how to access the most appropriate mental health service in your area. You could also contact your therapist if you have one.
If you find yourself experiencing difficult intense emotions or a mental health crisis please contact any of the below numbers for help:
We DO NOT recommend that you call Derbyshire Mind for this type of support as unfortunately we do not have a crisis service.
