Health in Mind

Health in Mind is run by Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trusin partnership with Colchester Mind. Together we use our expertise to offer a wide range of talking treatments (sometimes called 'psychological therapies') to help people with a variety of different mental health problems. We help people living in and around Colchester and Tendring with a variety of different mental health problems, such as:

  • Mood problems e.g Low self-esteem, Depression or Interpersonal problems 
  • Anxiety e.g. Phobias, Panic Attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety and Shyness, Health Anxiety or Excessive Worries
  • Traumatic Stress


We are only trained to help with these specific problems. Your GP can suggest other avenues of treatment for you if Health in Mind is not suitable. You must be registered, or be intending to register with a GP in the area to use Health in Mind, although we won't necessarily contact them if you don't want us to. If you or your GP has decided that you could benefit from the service that Health in Mind provides then our first step will be to talk to you to find out how best we can help you. The way we decide this is by looking at the information we have from your referral and by having one of our trained therapist talk to you on the phone. We will usually contact you within one week of your referral being made. We are closed evenings and weekends however, so this might make it a little longer. Once we are able to speak to you, we will aim to arrange an assessment with you within 2 weeks. When you begin treatment after that depends on what type will be best for you. For example if you have been referred to a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) we aim to assign you to someone within 10 days but if you will be receiving psychological therapies like CBT, you might have to wait a while longer. If you are on a waiting list, we will contact you monthly to ensure you don't feel forgotten, and we will encourage you to get in touch if your situation has changed.
