Mental Health Support Courses

Our Mental Health Support Courses comprise six sessions on a specific subject or condition.  Groups are delivered on a weekly basis during evenings and weekends.  They are closed groups with a maximum of 10 attendees.

Mental Health Care at Cardinal Clinic

For more than 40 years, Cardinal Clinic has been providing excellent mental health care.  This has been delivered through our in-patient services, out-patient appointments and via our day-care programme.

Most of our patients are referred to us by their GP and are under the care of a dedicated psychiatrist.  Whilst this is a fantastic care model for people who have an acute mental health condition, it can be quite costly and may not suit everyone

This year, we are launching a new service to provide support for people who experience specific mental health conditions.  These are designed to be more accessible and are aimed at those people who are suffering a less acute condition.  Participants do not need to be referred to these courses and they will not be under the care of a psychiatrist whilst attending them.

Mental Health Support Courses:  An Overview

Our Mental Health Support Courses comprise six sessions on a specific subject or condition.  Groups are delivered on a weekly basis during evenings and weekends.  They are closed groups with a maximum of 10 attendees.

Each course is led by one of our Clinical Psychologists who has particular interest and expertise in the topic area.  They are supported by one of our Assistant Psychologists who may deliver parts of these sessions.

What is Included:

  • 6 two-hour psycho-education or therapeutic group sessions.
  • Relaxed and friendly setting in a comfortable and beautiful location
  • Opportunities to share your experiences with other people from similar backgrounds
  • Weekly handouts to collect over the weeks which form an information tool kit for future use
  • Post course follow up to assess and support you on your progress

Application Procedure

It is important we ensure our Mental Health Support Course is appropriate for all participants.  For some people, a course may compliment other care you are receiving.  Alternatively, this may be your first introduction to a clinical psychologist.

If you think that you could benefit from one of these courses, please let us know by using the form below.  We will then get in contact for a screening phone call to understand your mental health needs and what you hope to get out of the course.  We will also provide some more detail about the course content and structure.

If we agree that the course is appropriate for you, we will register you for the course and send an invoice for the fee.  This must be paid before we can confirm your place.  If we do not feel it is appropriate, we may recommend you seek support from one of our psychiatrists or discuss your condition with your GP.

Once your place is confirmed, we will send you full joining instructions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
