Welcome to Telford Primary Care Wellbeing Service
It's easy to take our mental health for granted - and if we think about it at all, we probably think that we're not likely to experience any problems with our mental wellbeing. These problems only happen to other people - don't they?
Of course we all feel low or worry about stressful things in our lives and these feelings will usually take care of themselves and fade away on their own - won't they?
Unfortunately, that's not always true, and it's a fact that 1 in 4 of us will experience a problem with our mood or anxiety at some stage in our life.
The Primary Care Wellbeing Service is a free NHS Service providing a range of recommended talking therapies for common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. We offer information, guidance and talking therapies in a variety of different formats. To access our service you need to be aged 16 or over and registered with a Telford GP.
To find out more or to refer yourself please contact the team on:
01952 613 822
Someone will take your details and arrange an appointment to discuss your difficulties and look at ways in which we can support you to help yourself improve your wellbeing. Please allow around about 10 minutes for this initial contact.
We have three short questionnaires which might help you assess your own mental wellbeing. You can access them through this link.
We are excited to announce that this year we have received further funding from Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group, in order to provide additional services to people with long term physical health conditions. For more information see our press release here.
We're also expanding other areas, and are now able to offer an online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy programme, called SilverCloud. For more information and to see if this would be suitable for you, download our leaflet here.
We are often out and about in Telford and Newport, speaking to different groups about Mental Health and Wellbeing. If you run a charity or organisation in the Telford area and would like to collaborate with us, please call 01952 613822.
