Mental Health Services


One in four people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their life. Often when faced with distress, we feel alone and may feel that no one will understand how we are feeling. Talking to other people who have had similar experiences or to someone who can listen to us can provide very real relief.  If you or someone you know is experiencing mental health difficulties, your GP can offer help and advice in the first instance and put you in touch with local services that can help you.

Newham Clinical Commissioning Group commission a range of services to provide mental health support to residents of Newham including children, young people and older people. These range from confidential talking treatments, services to improve your wellbeing and happiness through to community based psychiatric teams and in patient units.
