Talking therapies embraced

31st October 2006

A pilot project providing people with alternatives to medications is proving successful.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and so-called talking therapies are increasingly replacing more traditional treatments like anti-depressants for people with mental health problems.

A government-funded pilot in Doncaster which sees patients referred from GPs, has seen a thousand people in its first three months and is taking on 100 new clients a week.

Doncaster, along with a second pilot site in Newham in London, has been up and running since June as part of efforts to improve overall access to mental health services.
