The ways they help (interventions):
IAPT will take your details and if it is right for you, they will offer you an assessment to discuss what will be most helpful. This first step will generally be a telephone appointment, so please let them know if this is a problem for you. Your telephone appointment will be within 28 days of your first call to the service.
Our staff work across locality teams based in Coventry, Rugby, Solihull and Warwickshire. This means they can provide you with help close to where you live.
The service is run jointly by Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust and Coventry and Warwickshire MIND.
All staff are trained in the use of psychological therapies.
