What we do
The Primary Care Mental Health Support Services are aimed at individuals of all ages who are experiencing mild to moderate, or stable, severe and enduring mental health problems. We are based in four locations – Rhondda, Taff Ely, Cynon and Merthyr.
Who is it for?
Primary care Mental Health Support Service is an age blind service however those under the age of 18 or in full time education should be signposted to the local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Support Service (CAMHS).
Can anyone use this service?
Primary Care Mental Health Support Services operate either within, or alongside, existing GP practices. Prior to an assessment being offered we will need an up to date referral from the registered GP practice.
What to expect
We provide goal focussed mental health assessments and also treatment by way of short-term psychological interventions which can be delivered individually or in group settings.
We can provide information and advice to individuals and carers as well as ‘signposting’ them to other sources of support, including third sector organisations. We can also support onward referral and co-ordination of next steps with secondary mental health services, where this is felt to be appropriate for an individual.
