Improving Access to Talking Therapies – Calderdale CCG survey open till 6th March

Talking therapies help people manage anxiety and depression through self-guided help, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and counselling. It is about providing people in Calderdale with accessible and appropriate psychological support to help improve and maintain their mental wellbeing. There are currently two providers of talking therapies in Calderdale – Insight Healthcare and South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SWYPFT).

The CCG wants to review how talking therapies are delivered in Calderdale.  The engagement will look at what’s working and what opportunities there are to provide low level mental health interventions in different ways.

It wants to obtain feedback and ideas from people who have used talking therapies since June 2018 along with staff, referrers and people who feel talking therapies are not for them. This will support the CCG to shape talking therapies in the future.

We would like to know more about:

  • How you manage your mental wellbeing
  • What patient’s and staff’s experience are of the talking therapies
  • Exploring the use of digital technology to support managing your mental wellbeing

Your feedback will be used to inform and shape a service that meets the needs of local people.
