If you have a severe mental illness, e.g. schizophrenia or bipolar affective disorder, a diagnosed personality disorder or high levels of self-harm or suicidal thoughts with plans to act on them, your care needs would be better met by a secondary care service, such as a community mental health team. Your GP can refer you to this. Mid Essex IAPT does not work with people currently under secondary care as they will be supported by this service instead.
