What is TalkingSpace Plus?
TalkingSpace Plus is part of the IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) Programme. The IAPT progamme is a national NHS initiative to make NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) approved psychological treatments including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) more widely available to people suffering with depression and anxiety.
It is a partnership between Oxfordshire Mind, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, and Principal Medical Limited.
The IAPT model is based on ‘stepped care’ with patients receiving either a Step 2 service (most often guided self help, computerised CBT, group CBT or signposting) or a Step 3 (most often individual CBT) service depending upon their individual needs.
