Inclusion Matters Wirral
Inclusion Matters Wirral offers primary care based psychological interventions proven-to-work for common mental health issues (anxiety, depression and related disorders). It provides a stepped care approach (Steps 2 and 3) and a range of interventions recommended by NICE guidance. We also work with those with coexisting problems with drugs and alcohol.
Psychological therapists work in GP practices, community settings, and, where appropriate, in people’s homes. We provide individual face to face contact, telephone support and group work.
In order to meet the needs of our service users we work normal working hours with additional evening sessions Monday to Friday.
