We work closely with our community mental health services such as our home treatment team and recovery team to ensure a smooth transition to community services when you are discharged from one of our wards and make sure you have the right support in place to enable you to stay well in the community.
We also work with other local services such as social services, housing services, substance misuse services and your GP.
How to access our service
As our mental health wards are specialist services, you can't self-refer to them.
If you are experiencing symptoms of mental illness, please make an appointment to see your GP who will be able to talk to you about your symptoms and how they are affecting you. They will then be able to advise on which local services they think will be able to help and make a referral for you.
If you are already open to one of our community mental health services, contact your care coordinator or alternatively, you can contact your local mental health assessment team directly.
If you are experiencing mental health crisis and need urgent help, please contact our Wigan Mental Health Crisis Line on 0800 051 3253 (Freephone).
