We are happy to be working with the NHS and other local organisations on this new wellbeing service
Merton Uplift is a new Community Mental Health service for any adult living in the borough of Merton or registered with a Merton GP. Wimbledon Guild is pleased to be working as one of the Merton Uplift community partners to provide wellbeing support for people over 55 who have a mental health or wellbeing need, whether this is due to emotional difficulties or life stressors. We all go through low points at times in our lives. Stress, anxiety and depression can affect anyone and we are here to help.
If you are referred to us by Merton Uplift for this service we will meet with you 1 to 4 times for up to 1 hour each time. We can meet you at our office or somewhere convenient to your home.
The first time we meet you we will agree with you what your aims are and what we can support and information we can help you with. It might be things such as:
- Filling in forms
- Applying for benefits
- Identifying local activities or social events that you might enjoy
- Connecting with things going on in the community
- Supporting you to get the care you need
- Helping you with a housing problem
If we cannot help you ourselves we will try our best to find someone who can help you. And our Wellbeing Support Co-ordinators will work in collaboration with all the partners within Merton Uplift.
