Where to go if you have a Mental Health Difficulty in Mayo?
Your family doctor is usually the first person to approach in relation to mental health concerns. Many people attend their General Practitioner (GP) when they feel they need more support for their mental health. In an emergency situation, and outside of GP hours, it is advised to attend your local accident and emergency department in your local hospital.
The HSE Mental Health Services team in County Mayo includes a Consultant Psychiatrist, Junior Doctors, Community Nursing Staff, Addiction Counsellors, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists and a range of support staff. There are five sector teams, each serving a population of approximately 20,000 and providing locally based community services through a network of Outpatient Clinics, Day Centres, Day Hospitals and Treatment Centres.
