Next week (2 to 6 November 2020) marks International Stress Awareness Week.

Stress and mental health problems have never been more important than now, and the challenges they present never more acute than in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you are feeling stressed, anxious, depressed - or having any other problem with your mental health and wellbeing - we are here for you.

CNWL is part of the national NHS ‘Improving Access to Psychological Therapy’ service which provides a range of talking therapies for people who feel anxious and worried or down or depressed.

Throughout the coronavirus outbreak we are here to provide support for those who are self-isolating or anxious about the impact of the virus on themselves and their families and loved ones, as well as continuing to provide support for people with problems such as stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia.

To meet the challenge of Covid-19 situation we have temporarily changed the way that our services work. We are mostly offering focused support to people by telephone or video call and for some people the option of online treatments.

If you would like to self-refer to the service visit our dedicated Talking Therapies website.

If you need support out of hours or in a crisis you can also speak to the Single Point of Access Team on 0800 0234 650. Lines are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week or email cnw-tr.spa@nhs.net
