What is GPimhs?
We all experience difficulties in life. Sometimes we need more help in understanding and coping with these difficulties, especially when they begin to affect our general wellbeing, level of everyday activity and personal relationships.
GPimhs brings expert advice and guidance for people experiencing a wide, and potentially complex, range of mental health and emotional wellbeing issues into your GP practice, working to understand your needs and connect you with services to provide the support you need in the community.
Patients can explore the situation affecting their wellbeing – whether that is an ongoing mental or physical health issue, loneliness, debt, or other issues. They can then be guided to appropriate resources that may help, including talking therapies, benefits advice, or an introduction to a local community group or community-based wellbeing support such as our Community Connections service.
The mental health advice and support service we provide has been established in partnership with Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Surrey County Council Social and Housing Services, Catalyst, Mary Frances Trust, and Richmond Fellowship.
