How to access our services

Vocational Recovery and Work Retention

These services are referral only. We accept referrals for these services from GPs, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, community psychiatric nurses and other secondary mental health workers. We also accept self-referrals – please use the self-referral form.

Referrers will need to state on the referral form whether the referral is for the Vocational Recovery service or the Work Retention service:

  • Our Vocational Recovery service is for people over 18, 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 over 18, who are in work but on sick leave who need support to return to work.
