In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week Nuffield Health expands its wellbeing services to benefit the local community
Thursday, May 17 2018 - Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital has launched a new Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) programme, which expands the hospital’s extensive wellbeing services and provides support to those in the local community, suffering with emotional difficulties.
The CBT service that launched this month at Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital provides each individual with a one-to-one therapist to understand and treat conditions that affect someone’s emotional wellbeing; this can include problems like depression, anxiety, self-esteem, anger management, post-traumatic stress disorder and specific phobias which affect men and women of all ages.
When someone registers their interest in the service they will first have a telephone assessment with a mental health professional. Based on this assessment a treatment package will be recommended tailored to the patient’s presenting problems. Treatments can include a blended programme of face-to-face therapy, self-guided therapy, guided online therapy, and video and phone therapy.
The new programme at Nuffield Health Brighton is carried out with the utmost care and sensitivity and aims to help individuals in achieving, maintaining and recovering to the level of health and wellbeing they aspire to.
Brendan Street, Professional Head Emotional Wellbeing, said: “It can be an extremely daunting and stressful time for people who are struggling with emotional distress, which is why providing this service is so important to us.
“As this is a very personal service we want people to know that their health and wellbeing is our top priority and they will always be in an environment where they feel comfortable and safe. No matter how big or small a problem seems to that person, we have an experienced team who can help and provide them with a personal approach to treatment.
“Statistics show that one in four people experience a mental health problem every year. Nuffield Health takes the view that we all have emotional wellbeing needs, and these needs vary, day to day, week to week, year to year depending on what is going on in our lives.”
