North Yorkshire IAPT (Improving access to psychological therapies) Service
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. The IAPT service provides talking therapies for people experiencing the following difficulties:
- panic disorder
- anxiety and worry
- health anxiety
- social phobia
- specific phobias
- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
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.
