What we do

Buckinghamshire’s Adult Mental Health Gateway provides expert mental health advice and guidance to professionals caring for patients in the community and primary care, as well as simplified access to care and support for adults (aged 18years+) experiencing mental health problems.

Our aim is to ensure service users access the right care at the right time, ensuring the holistic needs of service users are met, for example; employment and training, social, physical and group activities.

This service is currently operating in North Buckinghamshire with plans to expand the service across the entire county by 2023.
