Brighton and Hove Wellbeing Service is an NHS Primary Care service supporting people from age 4 years upwards in Brighton and Hove.
They offer a range of mental health support for common mental health problems, such as low mood, stress, anxiety and depression. The service is staffed by a team of qualified mental health specialists who deliver evidence based care with an aim to support people to achieve their goals. We also offer short term therapeutic interventions for children and young people who do not meet the threshold for Specialist CAMHS.
They are a community-based service and have clinics in a wide variety of locations across the city, including many GP practices so that our service users are able to access the support in a place that is convenient for them. They also offer therapy over the phone and provide online therapy for people that may prefer an online format or would like appointments in the evenings or at weekends.
