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, including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), EMDR and Counselling for Depression. 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 457415

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.
