Lambeth improving access to psychological therapies

IAPT is a personalised employment support linked to short term 'talking therapy' from NHS Access to Psychological Therapies service.

This project takes a preventative approach to mental good health by offering a combination of short-term 'talking therapy' from qualified health care professionals, alongside employment-specific advice from Status Employment.

A status employment Consultant will work with you to identify your work needs to help you either retain your job or find a new one.

  • You must be over 18.
  • You must have been off work, or at risk of going off work with sickness absence or are unemployed and receiving unemployment benefits.
  • You must want to get back into work.

  • You should be engaged in (or wanting to start) the programme of short-term therapy provided by our health partners.
