Rochdale and District Mind – service update

Rochdale & District Mind teams are currently home working but want to give you updated information regularly so please see information below:

‘Our offices may be closed but we are working hard to support the communities of Rochdale, Middleton and Heywood with their mental health and wellbeing. We understand that the current situation may be a causing concern and anxiety for people. We are changing how we deliver our services and we will continue to support our  communities.

Checking in

Our Wellbeing Coordinators are contacting our current clients to check on their wellbeing and   letting them know we are there for them.

Information Line 01706 752 338

Our information line remains open for people to access support with their mental health and wellbeing. We are also able to signpost to other services in the area for additional support.

Signposting Service

We are keeping up to date on local services so we can provide accurate and current  information to the public including who is open and what services they are offering. We are also looking in to new services that have started to support for people who are self isolating.

Online cCTB

Courses Beating the Blues is a computerised cognitive-behavioural therapy programme for individuals with mild to moderate depression and/or anxiety. New and existing clients can access this in their own homes to help them cope during isolation.

New Referrals

Our website is open to new referrals. All our new clients will receive an initial assessment over the phone with a Wellbeing Coordinator to discuss how we can support them and signpost to additional services if required. The self-referral form can be access here www.rochdalemind.org.uk/refer
We are following the latest advice from the government and also from National Mind. As the current restrictions will be in place for 3 weeks, we will review our situation on Tuesday 14th April. Our website will continue to be updated so please do check it.’
