The treatment that you’ll receive from one of the NHS approved mental health services listed in Hartlepool and Stockton and Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland sections, is known as a ‘talking therapy’.
Talking therapies are a proven, effective way of helping people with emotional and mental health problems like depression, anxiety and stress. This will help you work out how to deal with negative thoughts and feelings and make positive changes.
Some of the main types of therapy that are delivered by our services are:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Group Therapy
- Guided Self-Help
- Couples Counselling for Depression
The choice of therapy will depend on your preferences and situation, as well as what the evidence says works for the problems you are experiencing.
For more information on these types of therapy, or more general information on talking therapies please visit the NHS choices website.
