On Monday the Depression and Anxiety Service officially became known as TALKWORKS with a a single telephone number (0300 555 3344) to access the service across Devon.

Today we are pleased to announce the public launch, during Mental Health Awareness Week, of the new website which includes a moving promotional film to raise awareness about TALKWORKS and how it can help you if the way you are feeling is affecting your daily life.

Sue Pike, Service Manager for TALKWORKS comments: "This is such an exciting step  – and driven entirely by the voices of people who have used the service, and who told us they wait until they are rock bottom before seeking help. I hope that through our new name we will be able to reach a people at an earlier stage and with a milder difficulty.

"The new name, single contact number, simpler online self-referral form and digital channels will make it much easier to promote and create easier signposting for people to access TALKWORKS directly, without having to visit their GP.
