We now accept self-refferals

We still accept referrals for these services from GPs, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, community psychiatric nurses and other secondary mental health workers. We now also accept self-referrals – please use the self-referral form (link below).

Please state on the referral form whether the referral is for the Pathways to Employment service or the Work Retention service:

  • Our Pathways to Employment service is for people aged 18 or over, who are out of work with moderate to severe, and/or enduring mental health problems who want to work towards a specific goal such as education, training, voluntary or paid work.
  • Our Work Retention service is for people aged 18 or over, who are in work but on sick leave who need support to return to work.
