Coronavirus - changes to this service

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak we have made changes to the way this service is delivered. To find out more please visit shsc.nhs.uk/coronavirus

The Emotional Wellbeing Service provides a bridge between primary and secondary mental health services in Sheffield.

That means that we offer assessments, advice and support to people whose needs cannot be met by primary care mental health services, but who not require on-going secondary mental health services. 

We also act as a step-up or step-down service for anyone who is transitioning between primary and secondary mental health services. 

Once we have carried out an assessment we can then decide on the best form of support which may mean referring you to another Trust service, or other services working in the city. We’ll also look at whether you have any social care needs.

Our aim is to help you manage your emotions or mood and put together a plan to ensure you are safe until your mental health has improved. 

The Emotional Wellbeing Service has a range of professionals working in the team, including Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Support Workers and Psychologists. 

How is the service accessed?

We accept referrals for any adult living in Sheffield aged between 18 and 65 who requires a routine assessment or short-term support with their mental health. 

Any referral to our service must be made via the Single Point of Access team
