Course Description


Evidence-based psychological therapies are the first line approach recommended for the treatment of depression and/or anxiety. The term ‘talking therapy’ is often used to describe these interventions but this can be misleading as engaging in change requires people to do more than talk. The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) provision is a valuable community resource in ensuring
access to evidence-based therapies for common mental health concerns and there are a variety of therapies delivered by the IAPT program that have been proven to be effective.
This event will explore what factors support positive therapy engagement, explore current mental health policy including the IAPT provision, and highlight important aspects of consultations in supporting improvement in mental health.


• Understand the current direction of Public Health and mental health policy.
• Identify the main features of common mental health problems such as depression and/or anxiety.
• Understand the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies service and how to access this for patients.
• Understand how chiropractors can positively influence their patients mental health during interactions.
