I am currently suffering with what I feel like are bouts of anxiety and maybe depression, I also find that I cry more often than considered normal and I can never hold the crying back no matter how much I try. I am also unsure on how to best help my alcoholic mother which causes a lot of tension at home. Would it be best referring myself and which service should I refer to? 1
Because people are being encouraged to talk about MH I've now got a couple of friends who separately want to talk about my MH I'm aware they think they are being supportive I'm finding it a stress I understand they want to know more about MH and they know I've got a serious problem which I keep control of. I feel they think I'm shutting them out which I am doing they don't understand the very negative feelings and self loathing that comes with it and I don't want them to. I don't want them worrying about me and also I don't believe they won't judge...... Even tho they will try not to. I get support from MH services I don't want my friends involved I just want them to be normal I don't know how to stop this. 1

Who are we?

We are a team of NHS professionals trained to specialize in offering effective, evidence-based treatments for a wide range of common problems that affect most of us at some point in our lives. Read more

We specialize in all symptoms of anxiety, and low mood (depression), but we also deliver physical rehabilitation programmes for physical conditions, and help people to live better with long term physical conditions.

We treat both emotional and physical symptoms together – because we all experience both in our lives. Our team is made up of Wellbeing Practitioners, Nurse Therapists, Cognitive Behavioural Therapists, and Counsellors. We have been delivering effective treatment in North Staffordshire since 2008.

Where are we?

We have three bases that are all in general NHS health centres, two in Newcastle-under-Lyme, and one in Leek (click here to find us). Read more

First appointments may be offered in one of our bases, however, we aim to offer therapy appointments as close to people’s homes as possible, so our therapists can see you in your GP practice, or offer an appointment by telephone.We can also offer home visits as required. If you visit one of our health centres, you will find the nature of the service is to promote the Wellbeing of the whole person – both physical and emotional. There is no emphasis on either medical (physical) health or on mental health – just health.
