Talking therapies reach out to support local people

Our NHS talking therapy services are supporting people in our communities by training and informing other professionals who work with people locally.

TalkingSpace Plus in Oxfordshire and Healthy Minds in Buckinghamshire run regular open events for professionals from all backgrounds and disciplines. It’s an opportunity to learn about local NHS talking therapy and how you can best support and signpost people who would benefit from treatment.

These online sessions include an overview of the service remit, referral criteria, treatments offered, staff roles and future developments. There is also plenty of opportunity for questions.

Colleagues are welcome from all professional backgrounds including:

  • Emergency services
  • GPs and health professionals
  • Third sector colleagues
  • Schools and education
  • Community groups and clubs
