Wellbeing Access Point

An Access Point helping people in Midlothian to access the support they need to keep well

Services provided:

The Midlothian Wellbeing Access Point is a service in Midlothian, aiming to help people find how to access the support they need to keep well.

It can be hard to know what groups and services are available in the local area and how to get the support you need. The Access Point is all about guiding you to access the support you need to increase your mental wellbeing—reducing low mood and your feelings of stress; increasing your confidence and self-esteem. The Access Point is not a crisis or emergency service.

The Access Point can help through supporting you to:
• Understand more about why you feel unwell
• Find out what’s going on in your local community—groups, activities and services
• Access the support that will work best for you.

The service is open to adults aged from 18-65, who live in and are registered with a GP in Midlothian. You don’t need to make an appointment or be referred to access the service, so come along and find out how the Access Point can help you. The access point is a confidential service and all personal information is held under strict legal and ethical rules.

When you come along to the Access Point you’ll be seen in a private space by one of our trained staff. They will have a conversation with you to look at your current difficulties and together you can decide what support will work best for you..

People will normally be seen on a first come, first served basis. A session will normally last for approximately 30 minutes. Before you come along, it can be helpful to think about why you’re looking for help from the Midlothian Wellbeing Access Point, and about the type of help you’re looking for.
