Psychological Therapies in Primary Care (InPsyTe)

A team of academics, commissioners, psychologists and other experts, working together to improve the uptake of, access to, and outcomes for psychological therapies.

The Psychological Therapies Health Integration Team (HIT) is a team of academics, commissioners, psychologists and other experts, working together to improve the uptake of, access to, and outcomes for psychological therapies.

Most common mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression, are managed in primary care (general practice) and Bristol has recently re-organised its primary care mental health services. This is an opportunity to improve the access to, and outcomes of, psychological therapies that are known to be effective in the treatment of these problems. At the same time, more and more people are online and using smart mobile devices. Now is the time to develop and use high quality online materials to support the work of low and high intensity psychotherapists.
