Mental Health

Mental Health issues can affect people of all ages. Prevention, early intervention and support can help manage the effects of mental ill health with greater independence.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust provides specialist mental health services to people of all ages in Oxfordshire. Staff work closely with GP practices, community pharmacies, children’s centres, school charities, universities, voluntary groups and county council services to make sure patients get 'joined up' care.
