IAPT- Mental Health awareness week activities across Kirklees and Calderdale


Many people experience problems at some point in their lives.  Life changing events like losing a job, an accident, the loss of a loved one, a traumatic incident or even just moving house can lead to feelings that can be hard to cope with. Sometimes there may be no event that has triggered how you’re feeling – this is common too.  Problems like mild depression, phobias, anxiety, stress, panicking, nervousness, isolation and loss of sleep make it difficult for us to cope with life’s daily demands. 1 in 4 of us will feel like this, but you do not need to try and cope on your own. If you live in Kirklees and are over the age of 18, the IAPT service can help.

Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) helps people get quick and easy access to the best type of therapy for their individual needs. We have a team of qualified and experienced professionals specially chosen to work with you. We can help you:

  • Address current problems, including how to deal with phobias such as a fear of flying
  • Gain a new understanding of your difficulties and develop new ways of coping
  • Talk about your difficulties in a non-judgmental and supportive environment
