If you are having difficulties such as feeling low, anxious or stresses and would like some help, you can discuss this with your GP who may arrange a referral to the Open Mind service
How to Refer
You may be eligible for help if you are aged 16 or over and registered with a GP practice in Leicester City. Contact your GP who may arrange a referral to Open Mind.
The Adult Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT) are made up of Consultant Psychiatrists, Psychiatric Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers and Psychologists providing a range of treatments, interventions and assistance to adults (people aged 16-65) suffering from difficulty with their mental health who have been referred by their GPs or other health professionals.
The types of illnesses people are referred with include bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, severe depression, personality disorder, dual diagnosis and aspergers/autistic spectrum disorder. People requiring ongoing treatment are seen in clinics, appointments made at CMHT bases and through home visits. There is also a developing group work programme.
