Brief Intervention Talking Therapy

Brief Intervention Talking Therapy (BITT) is a non-urgent service for people over 16 years old who need short term support with their mental wellbeing.

It is a private and confidential process that allows you to talk with an experienced mental health clinician. The clinician will work with you to find coping strategies that are helpful and lasting. For many people, the most helpful thing about BITT is talking to someone they can trust and coming up with a plan.
