Mental Health

If you are an adult looking for help with a mental health condition but you are not registered at a Southampton City or Dorset GP practice you can find details of your local Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service here.

For concerns regarding the mental health of a child please contact the child's GP practice or school in the first instance if there is no immediate risk.

For details of how to access emergency help for children or adults in any area click the Emergency Support tab at the top right of the screen.
