Bolton Psychological Therapies Service
Bolton Psychological Therapies Service provides a range of both adult mental health and physical health evidence based psychological therapies. The physical health psychology service is contracted by the acute hospital trust in Bolton. The adult mental health service provides both individual and group therapies in inpatient and outpatient settings to Bolton adult residents to improve the psychological wellbeing of those individuals experiencing major, complex and recurring psychological difficulties.
Psychological therapies staff work with other NHS staff in Bolton (inpatient ward staff, community mental health workers, GPs, medical staff) to support them to develop their psychological knowledge and skills and to deliver effective and ‘stepped’ psychosocial interventions to service users. The department also works with the Bolton service user groups to increase access to and information about psychological conditions.
