Connect Health’s approach

Our research suggests that forward thinking commissioners are increasingly looking for improvement in outcomes by exploring more innovative, collaborative and comprehensive approaches in delivering IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) and Mental Health Services, encompassing long term condition management.

It is estimated that one in four people over 16, experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any given year. Depression and anxiety disorders are the most common affecting 16% of the population at any one time (NHS England).  25-30% of people reporting a long term musculoskeletal (MSK) problem also report depression or anxiety (England 2017).

Connect Health has successfully partnered with the NHS for over 30 years, largely because of our extensive clinical expertise and our strong focus on evidence and innovation-based service delivery and practice.  We have taken our expertise and applied it to develop an exciting and innovative mental health and wellbeing model for supporting individuals in the community.
