Community psychiatric staff, including psychologists, nurses, social workers and occupational therapists offer help and advice to patients with mental health problems. Referrals are sometimes arranged by the doctors.

Our community counsellors work for the local Depression and Anxiety Service in Exeter. This is a self-referral service, which your GP may encourage you to use.
