NHS England (NHSE) and Health Education England (HEE) are asking people for their views on a new name for Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services.
You can give your views by completing the online survey.
IAPT supports adults who are struggling with mild to severe anxiety or depression. The service aims to help people get quick and easy access to the best type of therapy for their individual needs. The help available depends on each individual’s circumstances. Some people may benefit from a shorter period of help, whereas others may need more long-term support.
The name ‘IAPT’ is believed to have become a barrier for people in accessing these services. It is thought that by choosing a new name, people may better understand what the service offers, and help people to access the right service for their needs.
This engagement aims to get the views of a range of people to help NHSE and HEE re-brand IAPT services and create a more recognisable name.
Our Trust offers IAPT services to people across Barnsley, Calderdale and Kirklees. You can read more about our services in our directory.
