How to Self Refer

About Us

We all go through low points at times in our lives and it is not unusual to experience symptoms related to stress, anxiety and depression.

Merton Uplift is an integrated Primary Care Mental Health service accessible to anyone living in the borough of Merton or registered with a Merton GP who are 18 years and over. We support anyone who has a mental health or wellbeing need, whether this is due to emotional difficulties or life stressors. We also offer a service for people with a stable mental health diagnosis such as psychosis and Bipolar Affective disorder.

Merton Uplift is a partnership between the NHS and local voluntary sector organisations and launched on the 1st April 2019.

With values based on empowerment and building resilience within the community we tailor support to the individual. 

Wellbeing is core to our service with Wellbeing Navigators working in collaboration with all elements within Merton Uplift.

We can support your mental health and wellbeing needs through a number of ways including:

  • Self management courses
  • Psychological therapies
  • Psychiatric assessments
  • Recovery and Wellbeing support

Liaison with other Trust services:

There will be seamless liaison with, and transfer of service user care to secondary care mental health services run by the Trust from Merton Uplift if clinical risk requires this.  This pathway will be managed through daily interface meetings between Merton Uplift and the Merton Assessment Team.

If you think we can be of help and are interested in finding out more about or service please call us or complete the referral form on this site. You do not need to be referred by your GP or any other professional. Just get in touch with us and we can talk through whether our service is for you. We aim to support people with Wellbeing in many ways so no problem is considered to be too small.

We aim to make our service as accessible as we can and offer some evening and Saturday morning sessions.

Online one-to-one CBT provided by Ieso Digital Health 

Ieso Digital Health provides free, one-to-one therapy on behalf of the NHS in Merton for people with common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Qualified therapists deliver live cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) online through typed conversation in a secure virtual therapy room.

Online CBT follows the same format as traditional face-to-face therapy and is proven to be just as effective. You can access the sessions from anywhere you feel most comfortable and at a time to fit around your schedule, including evenings and weekends.

Access to the service is very quick; you can typically have your first appointment within two weeks of being referred. Online CBT is exactly the same as face-to-face CBT, other than that the conversation is typed. Appointments are 30 or 60 minutes long and can be attended from anywhere you can connect to the internet, including from the comfort of your own home.

Your therapist will work closely with you to help you understand how your thoughts and beliefs affect your feelings and behaviours and teach you new coping skills to handle different problems or situations.

We are offering more virtual (online, Video or telephone) appointments, which is helping us adhere to social distancing guidance which is still in place across SWLSTG NHS Mental Health Trust services. Please refer to the information in your appointment letter to confirm how your appointment will take place. If you need any support using digital methods to access a virtual appointment, please call the number on your letter and we will help you get this. We can try and problem solve the challenges of connecting remotely.

Face to Face appointment up-date:

If you are experiencing domestic violence in your home, have a learning difficulty, access via online, video or telephone will be problematic if you do not have a comfortable safe space to talk, or if you simply prefer to meet face to face, please still refer to us. We are offering face to face treatment if this is your preference, if you do want a face to face appointment these are available so please ask when you contact with the service.

Face-to-face appointments reminder: Please do not attend your appointment if you have COVID-19 symptoms (a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss of sense of taste / smell) or if you or your family are self-isolating.

When you visit our sites:

  • Wear a face covering. We will provide you with one if needed. Children under 12, and anyone with an exemption, will not need to wear a mask, in line with government guidelines.
  • To minimise the risk of infection, and to support social distancing, we need to limit the number of people on-site. So we ask you to attend your appointment alone, unless you have assistance or communication needs.
  • Please arrive no more than 10 minutes early for your appointment, ensure you sanitise your hands upon arrival and respect social distancing guidance during your visit, including while with your clinician.
