Healthy Minds and Additional Support Services
Healthy Minds is your local IAPT service, IAPT stands for Improving Access to Psychological Therapies. All of us at some point feel low, anxious, worried or depressed. It is completely normal but it can also start to impact what we do and who we are and when we reach that point it is important to get help to prevent these feelings getting worse. We understand that seeking support is a big step. There are many situations in a person’s life which may cause stress, anxiety, low mood or depression. We hope to provide you with support and information that will help you feel yourself again.
The Healthy Minds service covers Herefordshire and Worcestershire and provides a range of free, confidential support. This includes:
- Online therapy which you do at your own pace and in your own time
- Groups and Courses where you can share (as much or as little as you wish) and learn from other people
- Or more traditional 1:1 support
- We can also help you access some of the great resources available in your local area which might be more appropriate for you, or which can complement the service we provide.
