Support for Mental Health
Please be aware that the Cambridgeshire Lifespan Autism Spectrum Service is a diagnostic service and therefore we do not offer specialist mental health support.
Psychological Wellbeing Service
The Psychological Wellbeing Service is part of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies service (IAPT). Please visit their website for more information on the type of support they can offer.
You can refer yourself via their self-referral system https://www.cpft.nhs.uk/self-refer-here or alternatively, you can telephone: 0300 300 0055 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note, CPFT Psychological Wellbeing Service is not a crisis or emergency service and cannot provide an urgent response. If you are in a mental health crisis, contact our First Response Service on 111 and select option 2.
