Mental Health Service
The Mental Health Service provides a range of services for people of all ages in the Isle of Man who are experiencing mental health problems.
Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 people in their lifetime. Many people who experience problems will be provided with care and treatment from primary care services, such as their GP. However, in some circumstances, care, treatment and interventions from secondary care mental health services may be required.
The Mental Health Service aims to ensure that people are provided with services in the right place, at the right time with the right results.
We embrace a holistic approach to wellness, with the principles and values of the recovery approach at the very heart of our services. We aim to support people's recovery from mental health problems and to promote wellbeing in the community we serve. We encourage and promote the involvement of service users and carers in the planning and delivery of care and anyone being cared by us or working with us will be treated with respect and integrity.
It is important to us that we provide high quality services that focus on the needs of the people using them.
