Specialist Mental Health Support

This service continues to operate differently due to Covid impact on restrictions/regulations.  The main example of this is that as much as possible support is to be delivered by alternative means  rather than face to face.  This could be by phone or using the NHS ‘Near Me’ platform.  Face to face assessments may still be offered, but this would be the exception rather than the rule.  Covid screening is in place for all face to face contacts.

 

Mental Health & Wellness Service

As restriction continue in Moray, no face to face support appointments are available, all support will take place over telephone or Zoom.
