The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough psychological wellbeing service has a self referral system. Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) is an NHS initiative designed to make psychological or talking therapies more accessible to people experiencing common mental health problems. The psychological therapies offered are treatments approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). This means that the talking therapies on offer are proven to be effective treatments for problems such as depression and anxiety.
