Tameside and Glossop Healthy Minds

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

We offer support and treatment for those who are experiencing symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, low mood / depression, stress, worry or anxiety, feelings of hopelessness or panic attacks.

It can also help those dealing 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.

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.

Our service is delivered by a range of professionals including therapists and counsellors, who will find a level of treatment that is right for you.

You'll have a choice of either:

SilverCloud - our online therapy system

SilverCloud is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can start the therapy straight away and it can be done at a time and place that suits you.

In most cases, you'll get weekly online support from your therapist. It has been shown to be more effective than one-to-one therapy.

You'll also have access to the system for a year after you’ve been discharged from the service.

Psychological wellbeing courses

We offer six-week courses that will help you develop skills to manage your mood or anxiety. These are available in your local area, with a choice of course and times you can attend.

The sessions are informal and relaxed, and you don’t have to talk about your problems if you don’t want to.

The courses are on a rolling programme, so you'll never have to wait more than a few weeks to join.

When you have your first assessment appointment with a member of our team, you'll have plenty of time to talk through the two options in more detail to help you decide which one is right for you.

Most people find that online therapy or a wellbeing course is all they need to feel better, but if you still need extra help after completing these, we will then offer you one-to-one therapy with one of our specialist therapists.

We also offer specialist treatments, for example eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing.
