Did you know around one in five people suffers from anxiety or depression every year? Talking therapies provide people with support and treatment to overcome these difficulties.
Brent’s Talking Therapies service, provided by Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL), is part of the national NHS ‘Improving Access to Psychological Therapy’ service. They provide a range of talking therapies for people who feel anxious and worried or down and depressed.
Community wellbeing workshops take place in a group setting and are facilitated by experienced clinicians. These include workshops on stress management, low mood, as well as an introduction to mindfulness and overcoming panic.
The service also offers workshops to people suffering from long term conditions such as diabetes (type I and II), COPD, Cardiac and Asthma, as people with these conditions have been found to be more at risk of developing and experiencing symptoms of stress, worry and low mood.
Anyone registered with a GP in the borough of Brent and aged over 18 years are eligible to access the service. For those who wish to access the service in Brent they can refer by visiting their GP, referring online at http://cnwl-iapt.uk/referral-brent or by calling 020 8206 3924.
