Employment Advisors in IAPT

Employment Advisors in IAPT

The Employment Support Service for IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) clients in Derby and Derbyshire is helping people who are accessing IAPT services and who also have employment needs that could be preventing them from returning to, staying in or finding work.

In Derbyshire, Ingeus enables combined mental health treatment and employment support for IAPT clients.

We provide one-to-one support from an Employment Advisor for IAPT clients who are being supported by therapists from Insight Healthcare, Talking Mental Health Derbyshire, Trent Psychological Therapies Service and Vita Health Group.

  • A tailored action plan that puts IAPT clients in control of their future in work.
