Active Monitoring

We believe that anyone who is experiencing mild to moderate mental health problems should be able to get the help and support they need, when they need it.

Mental health matters. We believe that anyone who is experiencing mental health problems should be able to get the help and support they need, when they need it. That’s why our dedicated Mental Health Practitioners are working from GP surgeries across Derbyshire to deliver our Active Monitoring service.

Active Monitoring is Mind’s guided self-help early intervention service for people experiencing mild to moderate mental health problems. Through the use of our specially designed workbooks and weekly one-to-one sessions with a trained Mind Mental Health Practitioner, patients learn practical tools based on CBT principles that they need to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

The Mind Practitioner was great and I felt very comfortable talking to her about anything.

How it works

Currently the Derbyshire Mind Active Monitoring service is being delivered from three GP practices across Derbyshire: Crich, Ripley, and Horizon in Derby.  If you are registered at these GP practices, are over 18, and struggling with your mental health, you can be referred to our Active Monitoring service by your GP or other health professional at your GP practice.

The six-week guided self-help course can help you with any of the following common mental health problems:

• Anxiety
• Depression
• Self-esteem
• Stress
• Feeling alone
• Managing anger
• Grief and loss

Each week, our Mental Health Practitioner will work with you to offer support and guidance as you work through the information and workbooks provided.

Excellent programme. Really has helped me a lot. I would recommend it to anyone struggling

I am back at work and feeling more like myself, thanks to the Mind Practitioner for helping me write things down and not be worried about asking for help.
