Domestic abuse - where to get help during the Covid-19 pandemic

Need support during this time?

Vita Minds are new NHS providers within the IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Services) community commissioned by Derby and Derbyshire CCG. 

The service is now live and offers a range of talking therapies for depression, generalised anxiety disorder, mixed depression and anxiety and a range of other conditions - the full list is on their general information leaflet

People can refer themselves directly into the service either by calling 0333 0153 496 or by visiting the website and using the self-referral form 

Vita's new service further increases the options and accessibility for patients being referred into the service and in the current circumstances offers a service that does not require face to face appointments.




Any woman who needs to travel to find refuge from domestic violence can do so for free on any uk train as of yesterday. The cost of the ticket will be covered by the relevant rail operator.
