Washington Mind offers Person Centred Counselling which is a Humanistic Approach, in a non-stigmatising environment for those aged 11 and above, who are experiencing, or who are at risk of, developing mental ill health and emotional distress.We operate an open referral system; this means that we can accept referrals from the person who needs support, a friend, relative, or a professional (as long as permission has been received from the person who needs support). Referral can be made either over the telephone, in writing, via email or text.
The Initial response Service provides 24 hour access to mental health care, advice, support and treatment. By calling one telephone number 0303 123 1145, a member of the team will speak to you and discuss your current mental health needs.
This service is available to anyone aged 18 or over that has a common mental health problem and is living in Sunderland and is registered with a GP Surgery in Sunderland.To make a referral please contact Sunderland Psychological Wellbeing Service by going to their website and completing their self-referral form. http://sunderlandiapt.co.uk/
