How to get help with school exclusions

You can refer yourself directly to a psychological therapies service without seeing your GP.

These offer therapies like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for common problems like stress, anxiety, depression, OCD and phobias.

Who can get psychological therapies on the NHS?

Anyone who is registered with a GP. If you are not registered, search for a GP.

What happens when you refer yourself?

You will be offered an assessment

Someone from the psychological therapies service will get in touch. They'll ask about the problems you're having.

The service will recommend a therapy for you

The therapy will depend on what problems you're experiencing and how severe they are.

They will also tell you how long you'll wait for your first therapy session.

Psychological therapies are offered in different ways
