Oldham Healthy Minds

Healthy Minds is for people over the age of 16 years, who are registered with a GP in Oldham.

We offer support and treatment if you're experiencing difficulty sleeping, low mood, depression, stress, worry or anxiety, feelings of hopelessness or panic attacks.

We can help you deal with the effects of a long-term health problem or chronic pain, post natal depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, or eating difficulties.

With help and support, these feelings and symptoms can be managed, guiding you to a successful recovery.

We also offer couples therapy if you are struggling in your relationships, and psychosexual therapy for any intimacy difficulties.

Our team is made up of a range of professionals, including therapists and counsellors, who will find a level of treatment that is right for you.

Update on our service during the coronavirus outbreak

We're working hard so we can keep supporting you through this difficult time.

Instead of face-to-face appointments or groups, we will be offering support via video, telephone and through our self-help programme SilverCloud (see the tab below for more info).

You may find it more difficult to get through to us, but please bear with us.

We hope you and your family are staying as safe and well as possible, and we're sorry for any inconvenience.

Making a referral

Access our online self-help program (SilverCloud)

We are offering a mental health self-help program called SilverCloud, where you can instantly access materials which have been shown to have a positive impact on depression, anxiety and stress.

You can log into the program from any device as often as you want, and we'll regularly support you as you work through the materials. Once you have completed the program, you will still be able to access the information in your account for up to a year.

Please click here to sign up for SilverCloud. If you would like more information, you can phone us on 0161 716 2777.

Unfortunately SilverCloud is only available in English at the moment. If you'd like to access our services but don't speak English, please complete the Healthy Minds referral form and we will contact you to arrange an interpreter.
