Let's get talking - Skills survey: Identify strengths and areas for development in talking therapies delivery

The Let’s get talking Skills survey tool can help primary and secondary mental health and addiction services to identify workforce capability and capacity to deliver evidence-based talking therapies.

It collects information from individual practitioners and/or teams about:

  • talking therapy skills, knowledge and practice (Part A)
  • strengths and areas for development in your service (Part B).

This information can be aggregated at a team or service level to help identify workforce capability, capacity, strengths and needs in order to develop or extend the delivery of talking therapies. This tool supports delivery of therapies in adult services and can be adapted for use by others.

It is best used in conjunction with the Let’s get talking Planning tool which outlines a six step planning approach to use when establishing or extending delivery of talking therapies.
