Mental Health

One in three people across the country live with a mental health condition. This may be for many reasons including anxiety, depression, an addiction or a psychotic condition.

Patients living with mental health conditions need treatment, care and support, which for those in West Norfolk is usually provided by their GPs, by voluntary organisations and where additional and more specialist care is required by the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust

Wellbeing Norfolk and Waveney offers a range of free and confidential support to help people make changes to improve their wellbeing and to help them cope with common mental health and emotional issues such as low mood, stress, anxiety and depression.  To find a Wellbeing Service near you click here.
West Norfolk CCG seeks through its commissioning to promote the mental wellbeing as well as the physical health of our community.

Norfolk and Waveney Sustainability and Transformation Partnership Adult Mental Health Service Review

Norfolk and Waveney’s Sustainability and Transformation Partnership has undertaken a major review of local adult mental health services. The review will inform the development of a 10 year mental health strategy, ensuring services are delivered in ways that meet future needs.

We asked for a wide range of views on our adult mental health services across Norfolk and Waveney, and wanted to hear about any experiences you, or someone close to you, may have had in accessing support and care recently. The review included a number of public events across the Norfolk and Waveney region.

The review is now closed to further comment; findings will be published on this website once available.
