italk provides free treatment to people suffering from a range of common mental health problems.
How can you help me?
You can be referred to italk by your GP, or you can refer yourself using our online self-referral form, or by calling 023 8038 3920.
You can refer yourself to italk without needing to see your GP.
Our self-referral form can take around 15 - 20 minutes to complete, as it asks questions about your symptoms that you may wish to take some time to think about.
Once you have completed the form, you will receive an email giving details of what happens next. This might be:
SilverCloud is a quick and convenient way to access treatment flexibly if you are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety or depression. Once you have signed up we will allocate a Supporter to you and send a welcome letter with all of the details you need. Click here for more information about SilverCloud, our online support programme.
Please note you cannot sign up to SilverCloud if you are already with italk, e.g. you may have a Telephone Assessment booked, be attending a Group or Workshop or be waiting for face to face treatment. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns on 02380 383920.
You may prefer to go to your GP to discuss your problems first. Once you and your GP agree italk is the best option for you, your GP will send us a referral and we will contact you. If you haven't heard from us after two weeks, please call us on 02380 383920.

I am just contacting you as I have just completed my six sessions of italk and I would like to say a massive thank you for your kind help during one of the most difficult times of my life. I can tell you with you 100% belief that without your support and kindness getting on the road to recovery and feeling better would have taken a lot, lot longer.
