The death of Queen Elizabeth II on 8th September 2022 is a significant moment in our country's history. This news may bring up difficult emotions for some people; we are here to support you.

 

Wellbeing conversations

If you would like to speak with a mental health practitioner for emotional support or someone to talk to about how you're feeling, you can request a callback. Call backs are between 9am and 4:30pm Monday-Friday. We can also arrange a time for a follow up conversation to check in with how you are doing.

Mental health assessment and support

Whilst it is very normal to have an emotional response to loss, we of course understand that loss can potentially be triggering.  It may be that for some people this loss brings up past wounds or connects to other things happening within our personal lives.

You can self-refer for a mental health assessment via this link. The first step will usually be a telephone call from one of our qualified practitioners who will ask about your difficulties and think with you about what type of help you might need. Based on what you share in the assessment, we will suggest relevant, effective, and evidence-based services and treatment options which might be helpful.
