 How to get in touch and refer

EWMHS offers advice and support for stress, low mood and depression, anxiety, self-harm or difficult to manage behaviours as well as support for previously diagnosed neurodevelopmental difficulties such as ADHD or ASD.

Please be aware that while we are happy to look at assessment reports and any prescribed treatments, medication and diagnosis, which you may have acquired from another NHS service, privately or historically, we are always required to conduct our own assessment before providing any form of intervention. All prescribers MUST make their own assessment before providing any prescriptions. In the interim, any ongoing medication or treatment that was recommended and/or prescribed as part of the previous assessment will need to be provided by that organisation. We will review this with you as part of our assessment, though we cannot guarantee that we will provide the same treatment, as any intervention will be informed by our clinical judgement.  If you decide to seek a private second opinion outside the NHS, then you will be responsible for any cost incurred. 

If you would like to speak to someone for more information about the services we offer and to find out about what support might be available for you please call our Single Point of Access team on 0300 300 1600 option 2 9am-5pm, Monday – Friday to be put through to the three CSPAs and seven Locality teams across Southend, Essex and Thurrock. You can also contact us via email at nelft-ewmhs.referrals@nhs.net
