What happens when I refer myself or have been referred?
Once we have your contact details, we will offer an assessment; this is to find out more about what help you need. We have four options for how you can complete this assessment:
- Telephone assessments: One of our BHM practitioners can call you at an agreed date and time.
- Self-assessment forms: We can send you a form for you to complete and send back in an addressed envelope.
- Access clinics*: You can have a face-to-face assessment one of our access clinics located around South, North and Central Birmingham.
- Walk-In*: You can pop in to one of our walk-in locations across Birmingham and speak to one of our practitioners about your current problems and find out more about therapy options available. Our walk-in appointments are at the following locations:

Either before or during your assessment you will be asked to complete questionnaires to help indicate the severity of your difficulties.
Once you have been assessed, you and your practitioner will collaboratively decide on your treatment plan and ensure you have the right help for your current difficulties. You may have ongoing appointments with a BHM practitioner or if agreed that BHM is not the most appropriate service for you, we will help signpost you to a more appropriate service.
