Lambeth IAPT

Personalised employment support linked to short-term ‘talking therapy’ from NHS's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies service.

This project takes a preventative approach to mental good health by offering a combination of short-term ‘talking’ therapy from qualified health care professionals, alongside employment-specific advice from Status Employment.

A Status Employment Consultant will work with you to identify your work needs to help you either retain your job or find a new one.
