How Do I Get Help

The best way to get help for problems like depression and anxiety is to approach your GP. Your GP has access to IAPT staff; most of them work in the practice with your GP. Your GP can assess you to see if you have a problem that can be helped by the IAPT staff, and refer you to something more appropriate if not. Your GP can give you information about Stress Control and Healthy Living Workshops. Your GP can also directly refer you to one of the computerised Cognitive Behaviour Therapy programmes.

You can download the IAPT brochure to see what services are available in GP practices. Copies should be available in the surgery.

If it is not convenient to or you do not wish to approach your GP you can access some of the services we offer by ringing this number (0114) 2264380. You will be contacted back by one of our Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners who will make an assessment over the telephone and discuss what treatments are available for you. This could be accessing Stress Control, one of the computerised Cognitive Behaviour Therapy programmes, receiving treatment over the telephone or coming into our city centre office to see one of the team.

Information about the treatments we have available can be found here and also in the IAPT brochure.
