Mental health affects us all with one in four people in the UK experiencing mental health challenges each year and those that don’t most likely knowing somebody who has.
To support people to get well, stay well and prevent crisis, we provide a range of mental health services across Sussex.
Our services are holistic, person-centred and recovery-focussed. What this means is that we work with you to tailor support to enable you to manage your mental health as well as address other issues that are impacting on your happiness and wellbeing. To help develop our services to be the best they can be, we involve people with experience of mental health challenges, whose insights and expertise are invaluable.
All our services are free and available for people aged 18 and over (some can also be accessed by young people aged 16 and over). Please note: eligibility and access to our services varies depending on how support has been commissioned. More information is available in the sections below.
There is a wide range of support available across Sussex from a variety of providers, including Southdown. The East Sussex Mental Health Directory of Community Support
, West Sussex Pathfinder
and Brighton & Hove's Community Roots network
are useful websites that signpost to mental health support available.
