Coping at Christmas

22nd September 2016

COMING SOON!  – Online CBT therapy

We will soon be launching a free online therapy programme that people can access from anywhere, at any time of the day. From October, the Service will test a pilot of SilverCloud, a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) course that supports individuals with a range of emotional issues.

People will be given access to the package, if appropriate, following an assessment from a trained mental health professional in the Service. They will then be able to take part in the online course and will be assigned a member of staff from BWT to check their progress.

“What’s great about this system is that it’s online and accessible from anywhere, so people can try CBT where and when it works for them,” says Rick Cooper, Service Manager at BWT.

The Service supports people with mental health problems such as depression and anxiety and offers a range of short-term treatments and therapies, including courses and groups.
