You’re taking the first step towards getting help with stress, anxiety or depression!

We need to get some information from you so we can register you with Open Minds. Completing the form below doesn’t automatically mean you’ve been accepted, but the team will be in touch to discuss the next steps within a week. If you’re in need of more urgent help, contact the Single Point of Access.

First, there are a few things we need to make sure you’re aware of:

  • You must be at least 16-years old and registered with a GP in North East Lincolnshire
  • We securely store the information you give us, but if you’re worried you can also read our full privacy policy to put your mind at rest
  • If you’re already getting support from another mental health team – for example, the community mental health team – Open Minds might not be the right service for you
  • If you have a severe mental health problem such as schizophrenia or a personality disorder, Open Minds isn’t the right service for you
  • If your main issues are due to alcohol or drug use, Open Minds might not be for you. Visit the Hub for support and signposting.
  • Open Minds is not a crisis service, so contact the Single Point of Access if you need help urgently.
  • Open Minds is a dedicated Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service – a national talking therapies initiative to help support people to overcome depression and anxiety and better manage their mental health.

Okay to carry on? Great.
