Midlothian Access Point
The aims of the Midlothian Access Point are to assist people to better understand and manage their mental wellbeing and to suggest support services, activities and groups in the local area that may help.
The Midlothian Access Point is for any adult aged 18-65 years who are registered with a Midlothian GP practice. You don’t need to make an appointment or be referred by your GP, just come along. The Midlothian Access Point is not a crisis or emergency service, and you will be seen on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. You can bring a friend or partner if you would like to.
When you come to the Midlothian Access Point:
- You will be seen in a private space for up to 30 minutes by either a Mental Health Nurse or the Development Worker who specialises in community-based support
- They will ask you some questions about what you are finding difficult, what led you to attend and what you think may help
- They will give you some information about services, activities and groups in your local community
- They will help you to decide what will work best for you and complete any necessary paperwork
- If appropriate, you will also be offered short-term support to attend these services, activities and groups
