Depression and Anxiety Service
The Depression and Anxiety Service (DAS) for East & Mid Devon provide help for people who are stressed, anxious or low in mood. They offer a free self-referral NHS service aiming to provide talking therapy as a first-line treatment. Help is provided through the CBT method, teaching patients guided self-help either face to face, over the telephone or in psychoeducational courses. This is different to conventional counselling and therapy as it looks at the present rather than the past, and leads the patient to take an active part in developing the skills to help themselves in the future.
