During the current outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) we have made some temporary changes to the way that we support people and how they can get in touch with us. In line with government guidance, we are minimising face-to-face contact. We have made these changes to help ensure the safety of our patients, staff and their families - and everyone who comes into contact with our organisation. Thank you for your understanding and support.
Telephone support is being offered during the lock down period. Please click on each Link Centre to contact staff. If you are unable to get through please leave a message and a member of the team will get back to you, as soon as possible.
Please note our telephone support is only available during normal centre opening times.
The North Devon Link Centres are for people experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties. We work within a recovery model which means we treat everyone as an individual, focussing on strengths and empowering people to make choices about their own life to give hope for the future.
With our experienced team of mental health support workers, at the Link centres we provide a safe space for drop-in sessions where people can socialise and make friends. We run a variety of wellbeing and therapeutic groups, offer time limited community outreach if you are struggling to leave your home and can offer one to one support during centre opening times with prior arrangement. Our support workers are not counsellors but they are experienced listeners who recognise that people’s needs are very specific to the individual. Our team work sensitively and flexibly to support people with mental health difficulties, signposting you to other services where necessary or working with you to find practical ways of resolving your particular problems, including housing, debt and benefit difficulties.
You can refer yourself to the Link centres or alternatively, ask your GP, social worker, care co-ordinator or other mental health worker to make a referral for you.
We have four link centres in North Devon.
