Our specialist workers in GP practices

We have mental health workers based in GP practices in Worthing, Lancing, Steyning, Henfield, Storrington and Billingshurst

West Sussex Mind has specialist mental health workers based in GP practices across Worthing, Lancing, Steyning, Shoreham, Southwick, Henfield, Storrington and Billingshurst. If you live in these areas, you could choose to seek mental health support in your local practice.

You can speak to your GP who could refer you to one of our team. We can then help you with:

  • Planning a way forward
  • A personalized support plan
  • One-to-one support, either face-to-face, over the phone, via online video calls and/or by email. Typically, one-to-one work will be offered in blocks of six sessions
  • Assisting you to find solutions to specific problems or difficulties and how to develop skills and strategies to maintain positive mental health
  • Identifying triggers and early warning signs that may indicate that your mental health may be deteriorating and how to manage this in a healthy way
  • Useful resources to help you manage your emotional well-being
  • Information about other services that may be available in your local area.

If you seek support with us via your GP, your GP records will reflect this. If you are interested in this support, please speak to your GP.

We also work closely with Pathfinder clinicians so if you need additional help with your mental health, we can refer you to them.
