Mental Health Practitioner (MHP)

The Mental Health Practitioner (MHP) in the practice offers brief mental health assessment for patients presenting with mental health concerns or difficulties.

The MHP provides 30 minute appointments, primarily by telephone but if required,  face to face appointments can be arranged.  They often have the ability, where possible, to offer on the day or next day appointments, offering quick and prompt assessment and support.  They can also redirect you to existing support services that you may already be open to.  They have good links with community services, online resources and strong links with mental health teams to offer you the best and most suitable advice, support and signposting to meet your needs and support your mental health and wellbeing.
