VitaMinds - IAPT Service for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire

Coronavirus service update

In response to the most resent guidelines the BNSSG service has moved to a full remote delivery of its services.This means that all our mental health services will be delivered either:

 - Telephone

  - Through video conferencing

 - Through webinars

Currently our service continues to receive referrals as normal so please follow this link to refer yourself into our service.

VitaMinds is the service name of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service for people who:

* are over 16 years old

* are registered at a GP Practice in Bristol, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire

* are experiencing anxiety, depression or other common mental health problems.

This service was previously called Positive Step in North Somerset.

Research shows that earlier intervention through this kind of service can help reduce the risk of problems becoming more serious.

VitaMinds Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners and Therapists are trained to help you to understand more about the difficulties you are experiencing and offer support and advice to help you find ways to cope more effectively.
