Talking Therapies Surrey
Surrey residents urged to reach-out for NHS talking therapy support during pandemic
Young people, those with long-Covid and key workers are the focus of a new campaign from the organisations that offer NHS Talking Therapies in Surrey.
Talking Therapies Surrey is the collective name of the six organisations that provide free and confidential psychological support to people over 17 years who are experiencing feelings of stress, low mood, anxiety or depression. They offer short courses of individual or group therapy treatments which are delivered by fully trained, IAPT approved practitioners either online, by phone or video call or in-person.
These services in Surrey have remained open during the Covid-19 pandemic and have now come together in a major new initiative to raise awareness of the help and support available. The campaign has been running on social media channels Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and Spotify as well as on digital and FM radio.
The focus is on groups most affected by the pandemic: young adults (aged 17-25) who have experienced disruption and uncertainty about the future; those suffering from long-Covid who are struggling to get back to normal and key workers who may be finding it difficult to cope.
The campaign animation for key workers is also on the website of Mental Health at Work an initiative by leading mental health organisations and supported by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
