Adult Emotional Health and Wellbeing

As part of its #StayConnected campaign for all Adults living in Neath Port Talbot, these pages will highlight a whole range of emotional and wellbeing services,  helplines and support to meet whatever the worry or need that arises.

Whatever the question or worry, however silly or trivial it might seem to some, it's about helping a person deal with what matters and what is happening to them.

If you are worried about the safety of an Adult, services are available throughout the pandemic. The Single Point Of Contact (SPOC) Service is basically the front door to Early Help and Social Services.  

Anyone can contact the SPOC team to have a discussion and get help.

A member of the team will listen to you and let you know what information, advice or assistance can be provided and who can help from social services, health, education, police, early intervention and prevention services and the third sector. 

If you do not feel safe or are worried you can contact the SPOC team: 

(01639) 686802 (01639) 686802 voice +441639686802

(Open 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and 4.30pm on a Friday)

The service is currently operating a ‘call back system’ which asks people to leave a message and then a member of the team will get back to you.
