Helping adults aged 18 to 65 get the right mental health support first time

Contact us if you are worried about your mental health and need more support than your GP can provide.

We are a team of mental health professionals, support workers and social workers that can help you access:

  • one of three Living Well Centres. These offer short and longer term support from our teams of clinicians, social workers people with lived experience and support workers.
  • if appropriate, a team that can visit you if you require mental health support within 24 hours.
  • other services and community groups who can support you.

What happens next

After we receive your referral we will work to find the right help for you. We may need to call you to discuss this and agree a plan.

We will then either:

  • contact mental health services on your behalf so you get help quickly, or
  • inform you about community services so you can contact them yourself.

We provide support Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. If you need urgent help at other times please visit Lambeth mental health crisis support.
