Lincolnshire Talking Therapies provide talking therapies for people aged 16 years and older. The service helps people who are experiencing common mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and stress. The service also offers support with issues such as bereavement or the impact of a traumatic event.

If you would like to access talking therapies, you don't need to make an appointment with your GP or healthcare professional.
