Overview

The Lambeth Single Point of Access (SPA) helps adults aged 18 to 65 years to get the right mental health support the first time.  People can contact them directly if they are worried about their mental health and need more support than their GP can provide.

They have a team of mental health professionals, support workers and social workers who can help people access:

  • one of three Living Well Centres. These offer short and longer-term support from teams of clinicians, social workers people with lived experience and support workers.
  • if appropriate, a team that can visit you if you require mental health support within 24 hours.
  • other services and community groups who can support you.

 

To get help from Lambeth SPA you can:

  • download the SPA introduction referral form, fill it out and email it to lambethspa@slam.nhs.uk
  • ask a friend or family member to contact them on your behalf
  • visit your GP and ask them to contact SPA on your behalf
  • call 0800 090 2456.  After they receive your details they will phone you to discuss what kind of help you need and to agree on a plan.

 

They will then either:

  • contact mental health services on your behalf so you get help quickly, or
  • inform you about community services so you can contact them yourself.
