There’s another chance to take part in an NHS England campaign where you can share your views on how counselling and psychotherapy can have a greater impact on people’s lives.

The third online conversation for the Psychological Professions into Action campaign is now live.

The campaign’s aim is to bring all psychological professions together to explore how psychological therapies can be expanded across the healthcare system in England.

Ideas shared by people during the first two online discussions have been refined and split into five themes.

Now it’s your chance to comment further on these – and to say what you think or good ideas, or are wrong, or what topics are missing.

The ideas put forward for the campaign will be combined with the responses to NHS England’s recent consultation on the Psychological Professions Vision for England 2019-24 to produce NHS England’s next draft psychological professions workforce plan covering the next 5 years.

It will stay open until 12 June.

Matt Smith-Lilley, our Policy and Engagement Lead for Mental Health, said:

“This is a great opportunity for counsellors and psychotherapists to get their voices heard and to further promote the vital role counselling and psychotherapy can play in people’s lives.

“The campaign is bringing together a range psychological professionals to work together to increase our collective influence and impact – with the aim of maximising the impact psychological professionals can have on health and care in England.”

The campaign is open to therapists and any other psychological professionals, the wider NHS workforce and members of the public – in fact anyone who wants to influence how psychological therapies are delivered in the NHS.

You can share your thoughts on the discussion forum on the Psychological Professions into Action campaign website until 5pm on 12 June.
