Not Been Feeling Like Yourself Lately?

According to recent research, nearly half* of those living in the South West felt concerned about their mental health in the last year, with approximately 1 in 5 stating that they were very concerned.

If you’re not feeling yourself right now, seeking support can be one of the best steps you can take to improve your mental health and get you back on track. Our Talking Therapies service helps adults experiencing feelings of low mood or depression, worry and stress, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress or obsessions and compulsions through evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The earlier you seek help, the quicker you can get back on track.

Talking Therapies are effective, confidential and free treatments, which are delivered by our trained therapists, online, on the phone or in person – you do not need to see you GP first or have a diagnosed mental health problem to access this support.

This January marks the start of the NHS Talking Therapies phase of NHS England’s mental health matters ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign and runs until March 2024. The focus of the campaign is to encourage adults to seek help as early as possible to reduce their impact.

69% of those in the South West who have accessed professional help (like CBT) for an anxiety disorder or depression saw an improvement in their mental health, so if you aren’t feeling yourself right now, go to to find out more about our Talking Therapies service and to access our self-referral form. Alternatively call us on 0800 073 2200. Your GP can also make the referral on your behalf. The service can be also be delivered to those whose first language is not English and in British Sign Language (BSL).
