Alternatively, if you’re experiencing a crisis and need a person talk things through with, you can call the Crisis Teams in your area.

A free and confidential NHS service

We all experience difficult times when we feel like we can’t cope. These incidents can affect your everyday life and prevent you from leading a normal life.

If you are suffering from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, excessive worry or low mood, then VitaMinds can help. VitaMinds works in partnership with the NHS to offer a range of short-term psychological therapies known as IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) to adults 16-years and over, who live and are registered with a GP in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

VitaMinds is a FREE service and you don’t need to visit a GP to get help –  the options for referring to the service are shown below.

Face to face service provision- Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire will begin to offer face to face therapy provision once more from 4th October 2021. In line with recommendations from NHS England, we will be operating a hybrid model of service provision with a mixture of digital, telephone and face to face options for appointments going forward.

Please note at this time given the positive impact our webinars have had in helping those we work with to improve their wellbeing, we will continue to offer all our group provision via a digital platform until the new year.
