Before April 2022, our service was known as Health for Health Professionals Wales (HHP Wales).
We expanded to offer mental health support to both NHS and social care staff in Wales and decided we needed a new name. Meet Canopi.
Canopi offers a free, confidential service that provides NHS and social care staff in Wales with access to various levels of mental health support.
- guided self-help
- support from colleagues
- virtual face-to-face therapies with accredited specialists
- support for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- and support for alcohol-related concerns.
Help in a crisis
If you feel you need to speak to someone urgently then you can phone the Samaritans on 116 123 or text FRONTLINE to 85258.
Further information can be found on our Help in a crisis page.
Refer yourself for support
If you wish to refer yourself for mental health support from the Canopi service please complete the form below.
Due to the nature of our service, we are not able to accept referrals made on behalf of someone else.
Please also note: to assist us in providing the best possible service, Canopi will not usually accept self-referrals where individuals are already receiving or are about to start psychological treatment or therapy from another care provider or source of support. In these instances, we would encourage you to discuss the reasons you are seeking additional help with your existing care provider or your GP.
Please be assured we will respond to your request.
Once the Canopi team have received your referral form, an appointment will be made for you to have a telephone call with one of our Dr Advisors.
Canopi Dr Advisors work from 9am-5pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).
You will be emailed, within one working day of receipt of your form, with confirmation of the details you have provided in the referral form along with the date and time of your telephone appointment with a Dr Advisor.
Please be aware our response may be in your junk mail folder.
There are also a lot of self-help and virtual groups you could access. A link for these can be found on our Resources page.
Your employer may also have support you can access.
