Who do LPMHSS support?

Local Primary Mental Health Support Services are available in Powys for people of all ages. These services are aimed at people who are experiencing mild to moderate, or stable, severe and enduring mental health problems.

LPMHSS is an age blind service with the exception of those under the age of 18 who will be signposted to their local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

Opening Hours

LPMHSS have core operating hours of 9:00am until 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.


How to access the service

To access these services, you will need a referral from a health professional such as your GP or a Mental Health Practitioner.

To access these services please contact your GP. If you are not registered with a GP you can still access these services by visiting any GP practice.


What to expect

The LPMHSS provide goal focused mental health assessments and also treatment by way of short-term psychological interventions which can be delivered individually or in group settings.

LPMHSS also provide support and advice to GPs and other primary care workers and to individuals and their carers about treatment and care, including the options available to them, as well as ‘signposting’ to other sources of support (such as support provided by third sector organisations).
