Find out about your local mental health and learning disability services in County Durham and Darlington

Did you know that one in four people will experience mental ill health in their lifetime?

Come along to an event at The Dolphin Centre  in Darlington on Wednesday 27 June and find out more about services available locally to support individuals who are living with mental ill health or a learning disability.


The information event will run between 11am and 12.30pm and will give local people the chance to talk to staff from a range of the Trust’s services including children and young people’s crisis, liaison and intensive home treatment services, talking therapies and street triage services.  Staff from our recovery, peer support and smokefree services will also be on hand to discuss the work that they do.


Other local providers and partner agencies including Darlington Mind, The Alzheimer’s society and the Citizens Advice Bureau will be at the event to offer advice on the support they provide.


Kathryn Ord, deputy trust secretary, organising the event on behalf of the Trust’s council of governors, said “People don’t always know where to turn for information and advice but there’s a lot of help available in County Durham and Darlington. I would encourage people to come along and speak to the professionals about how they can access this.  The event is also a great networking opportunity where you can have a chat to people who may have similar experiences.


“If you’re interested in a career in healthcare it’s also a fantastic opportunity to find out a little more about the different roles and services that are available in the area.”


“The information showcase is open to everyone and people are welcome to just turn up on the day; no booking required. Refreshments are provided.”


A workshop on the role of the crisis and recovery house in Shildon will follow the event between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.
