Blackpool MH pilot & IAPT services

Initially Blackpool ACFL were working in partnership with the IAPT team, but half way through the joint working the IAPT service purchased a package which enabled them to deliver to large numbers of clients about depression, anxiety etc.  This has impacted on our number of referrals from this route which have decreased considerably.  We do still work with the IAPT service but on a much reduced scale. 

However, due to funding cuts the BACFL service has picked up learners from the Arts for Health service and also the Well-being service as these no longer exist. 

The impact of this means that we can promote learning and how people can help themselves possibly cutting down on the MH service route.
