The Primary Care Mental Health Team (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies or IAPT) are a team of trained mental health psychological wellbeing practitioners and therapists offering a wide range of treatments and interventions to help those experiencing common mental health problems.
The service is based in GP surgeries across the Isle of Wight and in other community venues such as the John Cheverton Centre, our main office in Newport and The Gables in Halberry lane.
This allows us to be very accessible and to offer flexible appointment times and venues. We also offer assessment and treatment over the phone for those who find it hard to get into any venue.
The problems we can help with:
Depression, Stress, Anxiety, Low self esteem, Difficulties in assertion, Health worries, Trauma and post traumatic stress disorder.
How do I access the service?
Your GP will give you a leaflet about our service with all the details you need to make an appointment.
You will then need to phone to book an appointment. Our friendly and helpful admin team will arrange an appointment in your GP surgery, a community clinic venue or at our main office for an initial assessment. Alternatively, we can offer assessment and treatment over the telephone. We are also looking at the effectiveness of delivering therapy via the internet.
