Mental health support services

Mental health support

We support people of all ages, carers and families who are affected by mental health problems.

If you are experiencing or caring for someone experiencing mental health issues of any sort, you have come to the right place. We can offer you help with problems ranging from anxiety, stress and depression to bi-polar disorder, psychosis, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia and dementia. 

Perhaps you're under strain and feeling unable to cope, struggling with depression or having trouble getting over a bereavement. Maybe you've been self-harming or have an eating disorder. These are just a few examples of problems we can help with.

So, whether you’ve just started to have difficulties, face long-term issues or have a mental illness diagnosis, we can offer support directly or advise you where to find information and further help. 

It is easy to get help, you just need to ring us. There is no need to be referred by your GP or other professional. If you don't feel able to ring us yourself you can get someone to ring on your behalf but we would prefer to speak to you if that is possible.

Getting local support: our service hubs

If you are over 18 years old, live in West Sussex and need support with mental health, you can use our main services. In addition, you could take advantage of our specialist support for younger people (16-25), older people (50 plus) or families (with young children) which are available in some areas.

The best way to to get support is to contact one of our hubs. We run two main support hubs in Worthing and Littlehampton which provide services through the week and a smaller support hub in Midhurst. You can contact our hubs even if you are not in one of these areas. Our support hubs can tell you about and help you access the services they offer as well as other support in the local area. They will also be able to tell you about the specialist services we provide in some areas. 

If you live in other areas of West Sussex we can tell you about more local services that can support you but if you want to access our services you can as long as you are able to travel to us to do this.

Mental health support

Support for carers

A key part of our services is the support we provide to carers. Whether you are caring for an older person with dementia or are the parent of a young person struggling with anxiety, you may want advice and support. We offer respite services, friendly relaxed group and social activities, tips on coping and the opportunity to get support through sharing experiences with others.
