The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership workforce mental health and wellbeing hub is now offering self referral and telephone consultations. 

The Hub was launched in response to the impact of COVID-19 on people’s lives. This latest development means people can connect in their own time, and if they don’t want to talk to anyone, they don’t have to. The self-referral process also offers a self-assessment which can help people decide whether to take the step into asking for support.

You can access the self-referral page on the Hub website here:
