Improving Access to Psychological Therapies

We’re delivering Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services to support the mental health and wellbeing of prisoners in Hertfordshire, Essex and Suffolk.

Our services offer a range of Step 2 and Step 3 evidenced-based IAPT interventions to support people with mild to moderate mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression.

From 1 April 2020, we have been providing IAPT in partnership with the following prisons:

  • HMP The Mount
  • HMP Chelmsford
  • HMP Highpoint
  • HMP Warren Hill
  • HMP Hollesley Bay

At HMP Warren Hill and HMP Hollesley Bay, these are the first services of their kind. As such, they represent an exciting opportunity to experienced IAPT professionals to help build and develop these new interventions to prisoners with substance misuse and mental health needs.
