Mental Health Link Workers
Mental health link workers support people experiencing difficulties with their mental health and wellbeing - for example low mood, depression, anxiety, loneliness.
Mental health link workers will work collaboratively with primary care, community link workers and Healthy Routes in Wigan and Leigh and will attend huddle meetings in each of the Wigan service delivery footprints (SDFs) to provide advice and guidance.
They will support patients by navigating them across mental health services that best meet their needs at the time. This could be mental health services or support via community voluntary organisations and groups.
We accept referrals from GP practice staff via the community link worker referral form.
