Mental Health nurse
Mr Grant Downie is a Mental Health nurse who can support you through a period of mental ill health.
The Wellbeing Team
You can speak to a trained worker who will help you identify what matters to you, how you are coping and managing and what you would want to change in the future. From this ‘good conversation’ you can identify small and sometimes larger steps to make those changes, and identify what support you might need to do this.
Adults from 18 to 90+ are accessing the Wellbeing Service, and in being given the time to talk and reflect are making changes which ultimately benefits their mental and physical health – their whole wellbeing.
