Our out of hours, evening 1:1 support is now being offered over the phone because of restrictions during the coronavirus outbreak. You can still book an appointment to speak to one of our recovery workers by contacting your own GP receptionist and asking for an appointment with a Mind recovery worker in Extended Access.
Who are Mind Recovery Workers?
Mind Recovery Workers are employed by Mind in Bradford to offer 1:1 support at five GP surgeries in Bradford. They can be a first step to seeking help for your own mental health problems or those of a family member.
Who can see a Mind Recovery Worker?
Our recovery workers are ready to listen and talk to anyone who is worried about their mental health who is aged 11 or over. We have separate workers for young people aged between 11-25 and adults. You do not need to have a diagnosis or be referred by your own GP.
