Where is the service located?

IAPT staff are based in GP Practices throughout Sheffield.  The main office is at St George's Community Health Centre. 

How is the service accessed?

Sheffield GPs can refer to the IAPT Service and can provide their patients with information about Stress Control and Healthy Living Workshops. GPs can also directly refer their patients to one of the computerised Cognitive Behaviour Therapy programmes.

Individuals can self-refer to some IAPT Services on 0114 2264380.  Self-referrers will be contacted by a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner who will make an assessment over the telephone and discuss what treatments are available. This could be accessing Stress Control, one of the computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy programmes, receiving treatment over the telephone, or coming into the city centre office to see one of the team.

We also offer a specialist health and wellbeing service which offers a range of support for people living with a long-term health condition. You can find out more about the service by watching the video below.
