The AccEPT clinic
Accessing evidence-based psychological therapies

AccEPT offers psychological treatments for people with severe and recurrent depression. The clinic specialises in psychological therapies that are supported by evidence and recommended by the National Institutes of Clinical Excellence. These include cognitive behavioural therapy for those who are currently depressed and mindfulness based cognitive therapy to help people with a history of depression stay free from depression. Many of these treatments are conducted in group sessions, allowing more people access to treatment and bringing the added benefit of service-users being able to share their experiences with others.
