Led by Dr Elizabeth Lee, the clinic will provide a wide range of mental health and neurodiversity services for adults, young people, and children, as well as easing long waiting lists across the city.

Nottingham City’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy data indicated that over 110,000 adults aged over 16 and more than 5,000 children aged 5 to 16 living in Nottingham are living with mental health problems.

Born and raised in Nottingham, Elizabeth has plans for the new clinic to have a long-lasting, positive impact on her local community.

She said: “Mental health deserves to be treated just as importantly as physical health. With the rising demand and waiting times for mental health services across the UK, the clinic will make a real difference. I’m proud to be providing such a key service to the area having seen first-hand challenges in accessing timely and effective mental health support,”

 “PHC Nottingham will provide a supportive environment where individuals can access the support they need without undue delay. With a number of therapy rooms available, our multi-disciplinary team of psychologists and other allied health professionals are committed to offering personalised care to the highest standard.

“Our approach is tailored to the unique needs of everyone, ensuring a path to recovery and wellbeing that is both empowering and sustainable.”

The new Nottingham clinic will offer a calm, quiet, and safe space where people can work through a range of mental health difficulties in a compassionate, respectful, and safe environment.

Specialising in mental health therapies, PHC Nottingham will offer tailored face-to-face and online psychological therapies to individuals and families for difficulties such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and aims to provide specialist assessment services for Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

 “The pandemic really highlighted the importance of prioritising our mental health as well as being able to access mental health support, if and when people need it. One in four people have mental health problems, but many of those people struggle to reach out for support.

“It’s important we try to change this by creating more awareness about mental health issues, breaking down the stigma surrounding them, and making mental health services more accessible and approachable for everyone. I am excited to open the doors of Purple House Clinic Nottingham and to foster a more inclusive and supportive environment for mental wellbeing,” added Elizabeth.
