GP link workers are non-medical staff based in GP surgeries across Moray. Appointments aim to build connection and trust between you and the link worker.

A paper-based reflection tool called a ‘Holistic Assessment’ is used to help you identify areas you are ready to work on. The link worker then connects you with the relevant services in the community, supporting you to take decisions and actions that improve your mental health.

This service is run as part of the Health and Social Care Moray commisioned service Moray Mental Health and Wellness Centre.
