New IAPT advertising campaign reaching people in Sheffield

A campaign to spread the word about the free NHS support available for people struggling with how they are feeling has been launched.

Every year Sheffield IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) helps thousands of people who are struggling with how they are feeling through a range of talking therapies for anyone aged 18 or over who lives in the city or is under the care of a Sheffield GP or a consultant.

And the organisation, which is part of the wider Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust, has launched an advertising campaign across Sheffield city centre (and shopping centre Meadowhall) and beyond with the aim to ensure as many people as possible know about the help available. Billboards and other outdoor advertising screens are carrying an advert for IAPT for two weeks.

IAPT Clinical Director Toni Wilkinson, said:

“We are here to help as many people as possible. We fully understand that there can be a hesitancy or a nervousness about coming forward and saying how you feel and that you might not know where to turn.

“If you are feeling down or depressed or worried about things then we are here for you and can help you improve how you feel. You can refer yourself for help or visit your GP if you would prefer to.”

Accessing help couldn’t be easier:
