Mental health support

Many people experience mental illness in their lives, often as a result of distressing family events and life crises. 

Depression, anxiety and stress are part of most of our lives at some point - and many of us sometimes need help to deal with these problems. 

If you need support for your mental health, contact you GP - they can refer you to the help you need.

There are many services your GP can refer you to, including:

  • Let's Talk Wellbeing
  • mental Health Facilitators          
  • counselling
  • Community Mental Health Team
  • Other specialist services – such as Eating Disorder service    

Our Adult Services duty desk is also able to offer help and advice to people as to how to get the support they need, and can be contacted on 01572 722 577

Rutland County Council Adult Social Services works closely with health colleagues, and provides an integrated specialist mental health service locally with the Leicestershire Partnership Trust.

Locally, health and social care services for people with more serious mental health problems are dealt with by staff based in the Rutland Community Mental Health Team. The team is based at the Voluntary Action Rutland building. Services are provided on a multidisciplinary basis with input from social care staff where relevant and required. Following assessment a number of different services will be available if needed. These services will range from hospital and medical services through to a range of support services to enable people to remain as independent as possible in the community.
