NHS Depression and Anxiety Service

We are now Talkworks

If you are looking for the Devon Depression and Anxiety Service (DAS) we are now known as TALKWORKS. We are a psychological therapy service, provided by Devon Partnership NHS Trust, for people who are over 18 years of age and who are feeling stressed, anxious, low in mood or depressed.

TALKWORKS is a Devon wide service offering support via a choice of methods including over the phone, online or face to face in our various locations. Find out how our service offers support in mental and physical wellbeing. 




Our Talking Health Team is an experienced team of qualified practitioners and therapists, who work across Devon, helping people to manage the emotional difficulties that often go hand in hand with living with a long term health condition.

Talking Health is a dedicated team of nearly 30 practitioners who specialise in understanding how people with a long term health condition may have difficulty in adjusting to their diagnosis, in managing the changes or procedures that the condition requires of them and are aware of the fear and uncertainty that living with this condition may bring.

They know that it’s much more common for those who have a physical health condition to struggle with low mood and/or anxiety and their experience can help those to live well with a long term health condition.
