The Warrington Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Service is a service designed to help anyone living in Warrington deal with common mental health problems. These may include stress, anxiety or depression, as well as panic, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder.
IAPT is a government initiative aimed at giving people who may benefit from psychological help improved access to talking therapies close to home.
The free and confidential service offers support from a range of highly skilled professionals including: mental health nurses, psychotherapists and clinical psychologists. It can help you if your mental health is causing you concern and is affecting your employment, your health or your home life.
We offer a range of face to face, telephone and computerised help, all shown to be effective.
The types of treatments we offer include:
- Education groups – large groups where we present information about depression and anxiety, and what you can do to cope.
- Guided self help – we provide advice and support but the emphasis is on you to improve your skills to cope with your difficulties..
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – a talking therapy that can help you understand thoughts and actions that may be linked to your problems and some changes you can make.
- Computer-based cognitive behaviour therapy (CCBT) – online programmes you can use to develop your own treatment package using tools such as interactive exercises and video clips. We also provide telephone support.
People can be referred to the service by a primary care health professional e.g. family doctor or practice nurse.
