How to get started

  1. Visit the website
  2. Complete the mood quiz
  3. Register and Change Your Life

On initial entrance to the site, you will be asked to complete a brief mood quiz. If you meet the threshold for Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT), and agree to support, a ‘pop up’ box will appear and you can fill in brief details which will enable an IAPT worker to contact you by phone to check appropriateness for this level of treatment.  If you are deemed as needing a higher level of treatment, you will be stepped up within the Wellbeing Service.  As you work through the course of treatment, there will be routine contact from the IAPT worker via phone/email to motivate you to use the online resources to improve your wellbeing and reach recovery. Patients wanting immediate help with panic need only select the big red ‘Panic Button’, to access an e-book on dealing with panic attacks.

You do not need to contact your GP to use this resource. For patients who prefer not to use an online resource, the LLTTF publications are available in all local libraries via Books on Prescription.
