Mental Health Services

View the Man On website here.

Around one in four of us will experience a mental illness at some point in our lives. When this happens having access to the right treatment and support is vital to help people recover as soon as possible.   Service users have told us that, wherever possible, they would prefer to receive this within their own home or in the local community facilities. 

Services to help people with their mental health in Inverclyde have been redesigned over the last few years to enable us to respond quickly to support people experiencing mental illness.  We have invested in new facilities for our community and inpatient services.   The community services are based at Crown House, and our inpatient service is at Inverclyde Royal Hospital.   

If you are worred about your mental health you should first see your GP.   You can also refer yourself to the Primary Care Mental Health Team at Crown House on the phone number listed. 

For all information on Mental Health services please see here.

Harm Reduction Services

It is currently available locally (mainly) through Inverclyde Alcohol and Drug Service (ADRS), Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs and Pharmacies participating in the National Naloxone Provision Scheme.

Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs are now able to provide naloxone direct to anyone living in Scotland who is over the age of 16 through our ‘Click & Deliver’ take-home naloxone service, you can visit their Take Home Naloxone page to order a kit.

There are several health risks associated with injecting drug use:  

Abscesses, cellulitis, collapsed veins (injecting with a blunt needle, overuse of injecting sites) and increased risk of getting a blood-borne virus (BBV), particularly Hepatitis C.

BBVs are carried in the blood and can be spread from one person to another. Those infected with a BBV may show little or no symptoms of serious disease, but other infected people may be severely ill.  

For more information on wound care and BBV testing you can contact your local Alcohol and Drug Service (ADRS)  

People can present at the Wellpark Centre in person or contact the service directly on 01475 715353.
