Worried about your mental wellbeing?

We all experience times when we feel like we can’t cope, sometimes this can start to affect our everyday lives and prevent us from doing the things we normally do.

If you are experiencing excessive worry, low mood, depression, anxiety or a lack of motivation then VitaMinds can help. VitaMinds works in partnership with the NHS to provide talking therapy services and counselling in Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland known as IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) and we can provide advice and guidance on the best options for you.

VitaMinds is a FREE service and you don’t need to visit a GP to get help –  the options for referring to the service are below.

We are not an emergency service and are not able to help with immediate crisis situations. If you need immediate help please contact either your GP or go to the Accident and Emergency Department of your local hospital (24hrs).

Alternatively, if you’re experiencing a crisis and need a person talk things through with, you can call the Crisis Teams in your area here
