Steps 2 Wellbeing


Supporting you with every step

Most of us feel sad, anxious, low or stressed now and again in response to particular events in our life. Whilst for most people this is short lived, for others in can cause ongoing distress, a sense of hopelessness about the future and impact on their quality of life. However there is support available to help you overcome your difficulties.

The Steps to Wellbeing Service is a free, confidential NHS service for people aged 18+. They provide a service across the county of Dorset and in Southampton for people registered at either a Dorset or Southampton GP surgery.

They offer a range of different types of treatment for people experiencing problems with low mood/depression, anxiety or stress. Some of the problems people might access this service for include:

• Depression and low mood

• Problems with anxiety (including Social Anxiety and Generalised Anxiety)

• Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

• Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

• Specific Phobia

• Panic Disorder

• Stress

The treatments they provide are all evidence based which means that there is a substantial body of research to show that the treatments provided work. They provide support either over the telephone, face-to-face, in groups or via the internet. This ensures that the services are as accessible as possible. The use of language or British Sign Language interpreters can be arranged if required.

Steps 2 Wellbeing are a self-referral service which means you can contact them directly to access the services. They also accept referrals from GPs and other healthcare professionals.
