Professional Resources

Whether you have a label for what you're struggling with (e.g., anxiety, self-esteem, stress), or you are trying to work it out, we all know, you can "google" anything these days. There are lots of helpful and unhelpful websites in relation to mental health.


The aim of this section is to provide you with easy access to some free evidence-based information about common mental health difficulties and psychological treatments.


These are resources for professionals to develop their knowledge or to use with clients.


***This is a very limited range of resources and not reflective of the wide range on the market. If you are struggling with your mental health, please contact your GP for further help, call 111 or attend Accident and Emergency in an emergency.***
