Who is this for?

Pathfinder Worthing provides advice, information and support for people aged 18+ affected by mental health problems living in Worthing and the surrounding area, as well as carers, friends, professionals and other agencies.

What to expect

Pathfinder provides a single point of contact. Our staff are trained to provide one to one advice and support. You can email or call us.

Pathfinder services operate during normal working hours, if you are calling out of hours or can’t get through, just leave a message or drop us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

We may not always be able to respond quickly as we’re not a crisis service but you can find contact details for other services in the Crisis Support section of this website if you need urgent help.
