Find mental health support in your local area
Health in Mind is the free NHS Talking Therapies service for people experiencing emotional stress and symptoms of anxiety or low mood. We’re here for all East Sussex residents over 18.
We offer a wide range of support to make seeking help as convenient, quick and straight forward as possible. From courses & online programmes to a wide range of 1 to 1 therapies, we can be your guide to better mental health.
Of the thousands of referrals we receive each year, many are from people who don’t know what is wrong. They only know that their life is not enjoyable.
We often find people have waited several months or even longer before making contact. We encourage people to identify symptoms and make a referral sooner. Tackling issues at an earlier stage means quicker access to treatment and can prevent symptoms worsening.
We know it takes courage to talk with someone about how you’re feeling. We offer a safe space where you can do that.
To refer to the service, you can speak to your GP but you can also contact us directly by completing a self referral form on our website here.
If you’re not sure if what you’re struggling with is enough to ask for help, the NHS has developed an anonymous Mood Assessment Quiz which can help identify if you would benefit from a service like ours. We use similar questions when we work with you to find out how you are doing and monitor this over time. At the end of the quiz you will be given a total of your scores. Even if you are scoring very low (0-5) but you feel that you’re struggling we’d encourage you to get in touch.
Taking early action to improve your emotional health prevents symptoms worsening and means quicker access to treatment. Our advice is to not wait. Get in touch with us today. Our team are ready to help you make positive changes.
