Learn about Open Minds and our work here:
We are offering telephone or online therapy to adults during the pandemic
Because we cannot see everyone at this difficult time we have collected together 100s of resources, activities and links to help you at www.openmindslibrary.com
Under 14s may be offered face to face counselling on Saturdays at a time between 10am and 1:30pm at Open Minds, subject to counsellors being available and in accordance with government safety guidelines
Young people aged 14 and over will be offered video calling or telephone counselling
We are very sorry but we have closed our waiting lists due to exceptionally high demand for our service.
If you want to make a referral please check back in September
and we will be able to provide an update.
This is not a decision we make lightly, but as of 19th July 2022 we have 85 adults and 52 under 17s on our waiting lists. It is our responsibility to manage the expectations of those already waiting for our support. We do not want individuals to wait more than 6 months for therapy and as such have opted to close our waiting lists temporarily.
We continue to work to support individuals already in counselling, and to prioritise those 137 people on our waiting list awaiting therapy. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
In the meantime if you are in crisis please call the Crisis Team on 01302 566999 or if you have already hurt yourself please call 999.
