Mental Health Assessments

Our Equity Team are introducing a Mental Health Assessment programme aimed at addressing Mental Health challenges facing the Asylum Seeker and Refugee Communities. Informal individual assessments allow our team a deeper insight into the issues members of this community may be experiencing with the opportunity to signpost individuals to relevant services or refer patients if required.

A patient-led weekly open session allows patients to talking openly about their needs and experiences. The team aim to normalise the stress and burden that comes with immigration and share techniques on how to overcome anxiety, stress and also encourage and frame how to support people in similar circumstances.
