If you live in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire or have a GP in those areas, you can always talk to your doctor about mental health or emotional problems you may be having.

If you are a working age adult, you can also refer yourself and there are two telephone numbers you can use, depending what issues you are having.

Mental Health Response Service

This is Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s referral, assessment and treatment service for people who are experiencing a severe and complex mental health issue.

Mental Health Response Service telephone number: 01482 301701, email address: hnf-tr.mentalhealthresponseservice@nhs.net

We offer a face-to-face mental health assessment for people living in the area (registered with a Hull or East Riding GP) who are experiencing a severe and debilitating mental health problem. This could be things like:

• severe or chronic depression
• severe anxiety
• deliberate self-harm or suicidal thoughts
• drug and alcohol misuse or bipolar disorder that is seriously affecting the way you function day to day.
• the service is also for people who are experiencing psychosis, which is when you perceive or interpret events differently to others which can include hallucinations, delusions or flight of ideas.

The service also supports those in a mental health crisis and can offer intensive home treatment and earlier discharge from hospital.

Depression and anxiety services

In Hull, for depression and anxiety services, you can also contact Let’s Talk. This is a new telephone booking service operated by the City Healthcare Partnership where you will be offered a face-to-face assessment to work through what support you may need.

Humber NHS Foundation Trust is one of a number of other providers in Hull who can treat people referred by Let's Talk for depression and anxiety issues.
You can contact Let's Talk on 01482 247111.

In East Riding of Yorkshire, for depression and anxiety services, you can contact the East Riding Emotional Wellbeing Service. Clients can be referred through their GP; this offers an advantage to potential clients because GPs may be able to offer additional advice and support. Referrals can also be received through a health visitor or other health and social care professionals via the Mental Health Response Service. You can self-refer by calling 01482 301701, emailing hnf-tr.mentalhealthresponseservice@nhs.net or online at https://iaptportal.co.uk/erew.html
