Psychological therapies

IAPT

Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) provides help and support for people over 18 years (who are registered with a GP in Surrey) who are experiencing mild to moderate mental ill-health. This can include stress, low mood, anxiety, panic attacks, depression (including pre and post natal), obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, post traumatic stress and eating difficulties (not severe).

There is a choice of providers available in your area, that you can refer yourself to without having to go via your GP. These are listed below. They offer people a realistic and routine first-line treatment combined, where appropriate, with medication. IAPT services usually aim to contact patients within 3 days of referral, assess within 10 day and start treatment within 28 days but each will have its own guidance

IAPT providers offer a range of treatments including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (also computerised), workshops/courses (e.g. managing emotions, worries, depression), group therapy, guided self help material, individual therapy, book recommendations and employment advice through partner agencies.
