Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT)

Calderdale Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) helps people to get quick and easy access to the best type of therapy for their individual needs. Many people experience problems with their psychological (mental) wellbeing at some point in their lives.

IAPT can help by gaining a new understanding of your difficulties and develop new ways of coping. It can also help you to make changes in your life and address current problems.

Some of our therapists offer treatment on the phone and will call the service user at their convenience, which can include Saturdays or evenings. A therapist is also available on Saturday morning.

The service is delivered in centres around Calderdale and each person is offered an assessment to determine if IAPT is the right service for them. If the service is appropriate for you, we will work with you to explore the problems you are facing and identify how best to deal with them.
