Mental health

Where to find help if you are worried about your own, or someone else's, mental health.

Mental health information is available through the Suffolk Libraries' Mental Health and Wellbeing Information Service where you can find information on:

  • health conditions
  • local and national support groups
  • helplines
  • books that you can borrow from your local library

You can also find out more on our care and community directory, Suffolk InfoLink, including:

  • local support groups
  • mental capacity and deprivation of liberty
  • Advocacy for people who lack capacity or who have a mental health condition

Talking about Mental Health Services in Suffolk

A strategy has been developed for adult mental health services in Suffolk for the period 2015 to 2020.

The groups working together on this strategy include:

  • Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group
  • West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group together
  • Suffolk Constabulary
  • Suffolk County Council 
  • service users, families and the voluntary sector 

From feedback and national best practice, we've drawn up six priorities to improve mental health care in Suffolk. These will support people in crisis, join up services and improve care and support. We have also discussed the areas for action, and would like to understand how important they are.
