How we can help

We have a friendly open-access approach.

This means you can walk into our service and get support. To make that first visit a little easier, you'll be greeted by a Peer Mentor. They've been through treatment with us, so they can give you first-hand advice. They'll be able to explain more to you about how the service can help you.
