Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust are the health body that provide mental health services to people living in Glossop.
They provide a range of services for people who have serious mental illness such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, as well as those that have more common mental health problems including depression, anxiety and dementia.
On Thursday June 19, health professionals from Pennine Care will be at the George Street Clinic in Glossop (and two other locations in Tameside) offering advice, information and wellbeing screenings.
The sessions are open to members of the public who are feeling low – they may be going through a stressful period, have worries that are getting on top of them, or are having trouble sleeping, and want some advice on how to cope.
The team from the Tameside and Glossop Psychological Therapies Services will offer advice and treatment if necessary, which could include an invitation to a mood or stress group workshop, an online course of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or an individual session with a Psychological Wellbeing Practioner or Therapist.
The sessions will be held at:
In Glossopdale :
- Glossop Primary Care Centre – Room 17, George Street, Glossop, SK13 8AY, from 9am- 7.30pm
And in Tameside :
- Wharfingers House – Meeting Room 1, Manchester Road, Hyde. SK14 2BJ, from 9am-7pm
- Ashton Library, Old Street, Ashton, OL6 7SG, from 12 noon to 7.30pm
The trust are holding these sessions because in the words of Chris Pimlott, service lead for Pennine Care’s Primary Care Psychological Therapies Service,
“Looking after your emotional wellbeing is just as important as looking after your physical health but often, because of some of the stigma attached to mental illness, people are reluctant to seek help.
“There is support and advice available for a whole range of mental and emotional health problems, which could include someone who is feeling down, lonely, or struggling to cope with stresses and worries.
“We hope these drop-in sessions will give residents of Tameside and Glossop an opportunity to come in and see us, have a chat about their wellbeing, and make the most of local health services available to them.”
Wellbeing screenings will only take a few minutes and are available for any person over the age of 16 who has a GP within the Tameside and Glossop area.
