North Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust and charity Second Step are working in a partnership to deliver ‘Positive Step in North Somerset’.
The programme provides psychological therapies for people with a range of issues including anxiety or panic, trauma, obsessions and depression. Carers receive tailored help thanks to a talking therapies programme. The psychological therapies service for Positive Step in North Somerset has helped more than 500 carers with therapy and support since launching three years ago.
This example was originally featured in the 'Six principles for people and communities: Putting them into practice' published by the People and Communities Board, with support from National Voices.
