At the assessment you will be asked about your current mental health, your mental health history, what treatment you have had in the past and what worked, and what your current goals are around your mental health. If you are feeling anxious and would like a carer, family member or loved one to attend with you, they can sit in the appointment or wait in the waiting room.
Following the assessment you will be allocated a care coordinator, there may be a wait for this however you will be offered a 6 week course whilst you wait for support. This course aims to support with your mental health whilst you wait and prepare you for treatment, there is also a duty worker available each day to provide telephone support and arrange a face to face appointment if needed.
