Staff are trained to help individuals recover from anxiety and depression and support is based around individual needs and requirements. Initial support identifies the problem and the self management programme that would suit you. Overcoming depression and anxiety will involve looking at thoughts and actions that are unhelpful for you, together with finding strengths for you to build on.

One element of support offered is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which is based on the way thoughts, behaviours and feelings interact with each other. Some of these associations can be helpful while others are not.

Individuals suffering with low mood, anxiety or depression may have difficulty in finding or keeping employment. This service has close links with employment advisors who may be able to offer support to get back to work.

Staff are usually able to arrange to meet you at a location reasonably close to you, for example GP surgeries, community hospitals or libraries.
