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.
