Talking & Thinking Therapies – For Help with Anxiety , Depression or Stress

Your local Lancashire Minds Matters Service provides psychological assessment and treatment for what are known as common mental health problems, which 1 in 4 of us suffer with at some stage in our lives.

It is normal to experience changes in your mood and behaviour at times of stress and emotional upset. Your physical health may also affect your mood and stress levels.

If these changes continue to affect you, your home or your working life for more than a few weeks, then your local IAPT Service could help.

Having a chance to talk to someone who is qualified to help can make all the difference

Please note that IAPT Services offer short-term psychological interventions for people who experience common mental health problems and cannot provide urgent/emergency service. If you feel at risk of harming yourself, or someone else, please contact your GP. For immediate NHS support call 111.

How do I refer myself to the Lancashire Minds Matter Service ( IAPT ) Service?

Either Telephone our Mental Health Single Point of Access on 01282 657 116 to make a self-referral, or have a chat with a GP first.

What will happen once I have referred myself?

An experienced mental health clinician will review your referral and you will then be sent an assessment appointment for a telephone assessment.

At the end of this assessment you and the clinician can agree the next step together.
Depending on your individual needs we will make sure you receive the most appropriate, suitable, timely and accessible intervention to help you.
