Bristol and South Gloucestershire Recommissioning IAPT event 13 December 2017
December 13 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
The NHS is recommissioning Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. The approach being taken to recommissioning IAPT is based on
(i) a perspective that mental health problems are connected with wider social determinants such as employment, isolation, stigmatisation and poor physical health
(ii) an approach that will therefore seek to link in IAPT provision to the services and interventions that engage with these wider determinants of health.
This meeting will enable Voluntary Sector organisations to learn from commissioners about why and how the recommission is taking place and reflect on how they feel IAPT services should be linked in to the wider determinants of mental health.
