For patients and carers

The trust aims to provide good quality information to everyone who accesses its services, their families and carers.


Our services

We provide inpatient and community mental health, learning disability and substance misuse services in County Durham, Teesside and parts of North Yorkshire. Find information about your local service here.


Our hospitals

While we have invested in specialist community services so that we can support more people at home, there are times when people do need to spend time in hospital. Here are the details about our hospitals and inpatient sites



Here we provide information on medication used for mental health illnesses to help patients make an informed decision about their medicines.


The information on these pages explains mental health and learning disability conditions and how they are treated. 


Self help

Downloadable self help guides for different mental health illnesses.



Contact information for local and national organisations and charities who provide support for people with mental ill health or learning disabilities, their families and carers. 


Patient advice and liaison service

Compliments, comments, concerns and complaints...we're always interested to hear from you. Contact our patient advice and liaison service (PALS).

The 6Cs

The 6Cs are the six enduring values and behaviours that underpin 'compasson in practice', the national vision and strategy for nursing, midwifery and care staff. At TEWV we expect all our nursing and care staff to practice the 6Cs in their working lives.
