Support from Community Organisations
Supporting your adult mental health and wellbeing
Many of us will experience some form of mental ill-health in our lives.
If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or other forms of mental distress it is important to get help as soon as possible. The sooner help is given, the sooner recovery can begin. Please see our help in a crisis page if you or someone you know is in crisis.
For less urgent issues, there is a lot we can do to improve our mental health and wellbeing – please see our mental health and wellbeing page
The council and NHS work with charities and other organisations to provide a range of things that are available to support you around mental health. Information on all services is available at Haricare, but some of the main projects are listed here.
- Haringey Wellbeing Network (external Link) offers the main point of access into support around mental health outside of the NHS. Run by a partnership that is led by Mind in Haringey, the network provides a range of advice, support and things to do which are aimed at addressing the causes of distress and avoiding things getting more serious - a range of group and one to one support that aims to prevent mental health problems, promote mental wellbeing and ensure those with mental health problems are respected and included in our local community.
- Let’s Talk Haringey (external link) is a free NHS evidence-based talking therapy service for people 16 years old and over, who are worried or have low mood.
