Local Talking Therapy services visited the Royal United Hospital in Bath to encourage staff, patients and their families open up about mental health and access support and resources if they need it.

Being in hospital can heighten anxiety and stress for a patient and their friends and family. Talking Therapies is provided by Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP) and supports people experiencing stress, low mood or anxiety, and staff were in the RUH to talk to the patients, visitors, and the staff.

The BSW Talking therapies service provides support for difficulties such as stress, anxiety or low mood. The NHS service is FREE and confidential for people who live and/or has a registered GP in the BSW area. You can also self-refer to the service by calling BaNES on 01225 675150, Swindon on 01793 836836 or Wiltshire on 01380 731335.
