Norman Lamb talking to staff at TalkingSpace

Minister for Care and Support Norman Lamb has praised TalkingSpace, the trust’s talking therapies service for people with anxiety, depression and other common mental health difficulties, describing it as ‘inspirational’.

The minister visited the service to learn more about how it delivers treatment to around 7 500 Oxfordshire residents each year. He said:

“It’s a fantastic service, a great collaboration between Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and Mind, providing a service to an enormous number of people across Oxfordshire who have anxiety or depression. We’re now reaching people who just a few years ago weren’t getting any help at all and now they’re getting access to a service that can literally help them recover completely.”
