About IAPT North Yorkshire
IAPT is a national NHS programme designed to increase the availability of talking therapy treatments recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
Significant events like bereavement, unemployment, relationship breakdown, traumatic events or even stress at work can lead to difficulties requiring help and support. Problems with low mood and anxiety can develop and make it difficult for us to cope with life’s daily demands.
To make sure that the IAPT service is right for you, you will need to complete a self-referral form. You can self-refer here or via your GP. Assessments are undertaken over the phone, although alternative arrangements can be made if required. At the end of the assessment, we will discuss what help is available within the service.
Where IAPT is not the most suitable service we can signpost you to alternatives where available.
