The Mental Health Act - Know your rightsIf you are unwell and you come to Mersey Care, you will have an assessment to help us find out what you need, not just now but to help you to plan for the future.

People access these assessments from Mersey Care in different ways, but most people will be referred to us by their GP. If you have been referred by your GP, you will be contacted by the Assessment Team who will arrange an appointment for you at our local assessment centres.

In urgent or emergency situations we have mental health teams working in the A & E departments of the three hospitals in our area.

We also have teams who work with Merseyside police who will make sure that if you come to us after contact with police, that your mental health needs are identified and addressed.
