Talking Helps Newcastle was commissioned in April 2016 to provide an integrated IAPT and intermediate psychological therapy service. This integrated model brought together expertise from a specialist national provider of IAPT services via Insight and 2 NHS Trusts (Cumbria, Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust and The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). The service is based at New Croft House in Newcastle with clinics provided at a variety of primary and secondary care locations.
The service is provided to three geographical localities (North, East and West), linking with the GP practices and secondary care across the city to provide access to assessment and a range of psychological treatment interventions to those people with common mental health problems who have low to moderate level of need.
