Coronavirus updates

Unfortunately, due to ongoing COVID-19 developments, and in line with current government advice, Barnsley IAPT has taken the difficult decision to cancel all face to face workshops, Stresspac courses and group treatment in order to protect clients and staff. We are keeping up to date with developments locally and nationally

Barnsley IAPT does, however, remain open and continues to welcome referrals from anyone who is registered with a Barnsley GP and who are experiencing symptoms of common mental health problems, such as anxiety and/ or low mood. Whilst we are unable to run our extensive list of face to face treatment options, we continue to offer 1-1 telephone assessments and treatments both via the telephone and online, which can be accessed in your own home.

 If the workshop, Stresspac course or group treatment you were planning to attend has been cancelled, and you are experiencing an increase of your symptoms of anxiety, depression or low mood, please contact us by telephone, 01226 644900 or make a self-referral online via this website.

 Please find attached and below, some useful guidance on managing stress at these difficult times.
