Mental health services

Mental health: Who to contact for support

If you, or someone you know, is worried about mental health problems you should first contact your GP.

Your GP will help you with your mental health as well as physical health and is able to refer you to therapies and treatments provided by a local organisation.

If you require more specialist help, your GP can also refer you to a community mental health team

If you do not have a GP, you can contact one of the assessment and liaison teams:

Southwark North Assessment and Liaison team - Camberwell

  • Address: 27 - 29 Camberwell Road, London SE5 0EZ
    Telephone: 020 7525 2751
Southwark South Assessment and Liaison team - Dulwich
  • Address: 20-22 Lordship Lane , London SE22 8HN
    Telephone: 020 7525 1881

Southwark Psychological Therapies Service  provides a range of treatments to help people improve their psychological well being without the need for more specialist treatment.

Depression and anxiety: Southwark Psychological Therapies service

Treatment could include guided self-help, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), vocational advice and signposting to local advice and support organisations.

The psychological therapies service is available across the borough, mainly based in GP surgeries and health centres and other community settings.

People whose independence is at greater risk because of potentially serious mental health problems may be referred to one of the community based mental health services.

How can I access Southwark Psychological Therapies service?

Referrals can be made via your GP, or directly by calling 020 3228 2194 or emailing sptsadmin@slam.nhs.uk
