Talking Therapies

Two thirds of people with long-term conditions will also have a mental health problem, mostly depression and anxiety disorders.

A further 70% of people with persistent physical experiences will experience depression or an anxiety disorder. These rates are much higher than in the general population.

Talkinf therapies will target the needs of people with depression and anxiety disorders who also have long-term conditions (such as cardiovascular disease or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD]), or have other persistent physical experiences (such as chronic fatigue syndrome or irritable bowel syndrome).

So if you have a long-term condition such as:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Disease
  • Persistent Physical experiences
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalopathy
  • Chronic Pain
  • Cancer
  • Coronary Heart Disease

And you are feeling down or anxious, at your next GP appointment they may ask you if you would be willing to speak to Talking Therapies.
