Adult Mental Health

Crisis service in North Yorkshire

Local people can contact TEWV crisis services using single point of access telephone number 0300 0200317. The new number makes it easier for those in mental distress, including children, older people and those with learning disabilities and/or autism, to get urgent help. Professionals can still contact their local services using the existing numbers.

In 2017-18, NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG spent more than £16 million on mental health services in our area – almost 10 per cent of our total budget.

Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust (TEWV) is our main provider. A list of services provided by TEWV can be found on its website.

One in four of us will experience difficulties in our mental health at some point in our lives. Significant events, or a build-up of stresses, such as work place problems, a change in life circumstances, a traumatic event or a specific phobia could lead to difficulties managing our mental wellbeing. Problems with low mood, depression and anxiety can develop and make it difficult for us to cope with life’s daily demands.

If you are suffering with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, worry or phobias, you can now refer yourself for IAPT talking therapies at
