IAPT – improving access to psychological therapies in Calderdale

Many people experience problems with their wellbeing at some point in their lives. Things 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 are feeling – this is common too.

Problems like mild depression, worry, anxiety, stress, panic, 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 Calderdale and are aged 18 or over, the IAPT service can help.

What is IAPT?
IAPT stands for ‘improving access to psychological therapies’; helping people get quick and easy access to the best type of therapy for their individual needs.

There’s a really helpful leaflet that spells out the benefits and tells you how to get help in Calderdale:
