Your care: support and advice      

Getting support

Most of our referrals, regardless of what service you need will have come to us from your GP.

We do accept some self-referrals into some of our specialist mental health services; mainly our Complex Needs Service, Specialist Community Addictions Service and some of our Psychological Therapies Services but you still need to be registered with a GP.

Finding support online

Many people find the internet a useful source of information and support, but this information is not always accurate.

See the information leaflet from our Library Service on how to find good quality health information on the internet: Patient Information Guide 2018 (pdf)

What to expect when being referred to a service

We provide a thorough assessment and will then shape a package of care suited to your needs.  Most of this treatment will be carried out in the community either at your home, or in a local healthcare setting. On occassion your illness may mean that we have to admit you for inpatient treatment either in one of our specialist mental health wards, or one of the nine community hospitals in Oxfordshire.
