Support for people with mental health problems

There are many services in Stockton that support people with mental ill health and their carers.

We work with a number of groups and organisations to make sure that you get the services you need. We provide social care services in partnership with Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust (TEWV) and also work with local service user and carers groups, voluntary groups and private sector providers.

We are committed to putting every person who needs support at the heart of all that we do and for people with mental health problems this means being flexible and offering everyone who is eligible for social care services the opportunity to direct their own support.
