Welcome to Talking Change
Welcome to Talking Change, a new self-help and talking therapies service created for the people of Portsmouth by Solent Healthcare.
One in four of us will have some sort of mental health problem in our lifetime. This means there are millions of people in Britain who are either having problems themselves, or know someone who is experiencing them. These conditions, which range from very mild to quite severe, can occur at any age and many people have a mixture of problems.
Who are we?
Talking Change was established in September 2009 as the regional delivery team for the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme, providing practical resources to support people affected by mental illness.

How can we help?
Different treatments are recommended for different problems. Talking therapy, self-help approaches, medication and exercise are all recommended interventions for common mental health problems. On this site you can find information about these problems, selfhelp resources and tools for making change.
