Mental Health

Did you know?

One in Four people experience mental health issues every year.

Common conditions include depression, anxiety and phobias.


Some mental health services allow people to refer themselves, including services for drug problems and alcohol problems, as well as psychological therapies (IAPT) services.

Depending on your health needs, you may consider self-referring into some services run by Devon Partnership NHS Trust or Livewell Southwest.

Mental health services are free on the NHS. If you are feeling anxious, stressed or depressed you can access support straight away through Devon Partnership Trust or Livewell for Plymouth City Council postcodes. Other more specialist services may need a referral from your GP to access them.

More information about mental health is available on the NHS website, at the charity Mind and Time to Change.
