G.P. Support

A G.P. (local doctor) is usually the first service to approach in relation to mental health concerns. You can discuss the support options that are available with your doctor and the things you can do for yourself.


In some cases, a G.P. may refer you to mental health services or to other supports such as counselling or psychology.

The National Health Service (NHS) provides an easy to use online tool to find G.P services and mental health support services.

Private Services

A G.P. (local doctor) is usually the first service to approach in relation to mental health concerns. You can discuss the support options that are available with your doctor and the things you can do for yourself.


In some cases, a G.P. may refer you to mental health services or to other supports such as counselling or psychology.

If you are working, it is possible that your employer may have a mental health support policy in place. Many employers now offer a confidential referral service to a private psychologist or counsellor; some employers will even pay for at least six sessions.

If you feel comfortable, approach a manager or your HR department and tell them how you feel.
