NHS Oxfordshire Talking Therapies join plethora of stars to “Help!” you with your mental health thanks to the Beatles.

Oxfordshire’s talking therapy service TalkingSpace Plus is waiting for your call as national landmark mental health campaign launches with ‘Help!’ from The Beatles; backed by some of the biggest recording artists, the new landmark campaign uses the classic 1964 Beatles song to reinforce the message for people to take better care of their mental health.

People struggling with their mental health are encouraged to seek immediate help – just like the theme of the famous Beatles song – and say ‘Help me if you can I’m feeling down’ thanks to some of the biggest recording artists, like Craig David, Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts, Tom Grennan, Laura Mvula, Ella Henderson and Max George.

It is hoped the poignant soundtrack will encourage people to think and reflect about their mental health.

According to NHS England and Improvement, since April 2020, over 230,000 nationally have come forward for NHS IAPT talking therapies.

Anybody experiencing anxiety, depression, or other common mental health concerns in Oxfordshire is encouraged to get in touch and see how talking therapies also known as IAPT (Improved Access to Phycological Therapies.) can help them.
