Mental Health Support (Work Development)

We are a community based mental health service.

This service is available to adults (18+) with a mental health support need who live in the Bath & North East Somerset area.

Virgin Care’s Mental Health Services are comprised of three teams, each providing practical and social support to promote wellbeing and recovery from mental health problems.

The service is available after a referral from a number of possible routes (please see downloadable service leaflet below). All referrals come to a single point of entry into the mental health service. At this point you could receive support from one or more of the mental health teams.
