How to access NHS mental health services

Mental health services are free on the NHS, but in some cases you'll need a referral from your GP to access them.

There are some mental health services that allow people to refer themselves.

If your mental health difficulty is related to stress at work, you can ask your employer what occupational health services are available to you.

Check out the Time to Change website, which has a section dedicated to employers.

If you're at school or college, mental health care may be arranged for you.
