The support on offer will focus on helping you move forward and willconcentrate on steps that you can take yourself to tackle your difficulties. This can include many different options, including online supported programmes and one-to-one interventions. We can also signpost you to other services in the area that may be useful to you. Your first contact with the team is likely to be over the telephone with an administrator. They will take your contact details and arrange an appointment for you with a Mental Health Practitioner, who will talk to you about your current difficulties.
During this appointment, the practitioner will discuss your difficulties with you and look at ways in which we can support you to help yourself improve your wellbeing. During your call, we will ask you some questions from a questionnaire to try to understand how severe your difficulties are at the moment. At the end of the appointment, we will talk through the available treatments and
agree on next steps.
Online Supported Programmes
We provide access to online supported CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) programmes, tailored to your specific needs. CBT is an evidence-based therapy, demonstrated to show high improvement rates for depression, anxiety and stress.
The programmes consist of several modules. You can complete these at your own pace, in your own time. The goal is for you to take the information and techniques learned and start applying them in your day-to-day life.
At regular intervals, a trained mental health practitioner will check your progress and provide feedback and guidance.
We offer one to one support with one of our specially trained Mental Health Practitioners, this can be offered via the telephone or in a local venue dependant on your needs and where would be more convenient for you.
The sessions are time limited and will focus on helping you move forward, by learning new skills and techniques to tackle your difficulties.
All personal information provided to the Trust is treated confidentially. There are, however, some important times when we will need to share information with others in order to optimise your care. It is the responsibility of all health professionals to share some information with your GP and possibly other health care professionals. This is particularly important if there is information which would help to prevent you from harming yourself or someone else.
