Anxiety Research Project Launches

To promote Mental Health Awareness Week (13-19th May), The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) has partnered with Anxiety UK, the country's leading anxiety disorders charity to launch a joint research project and increase awareness of how traditional acupuncture can help those with anxiety disorders.

From today, patients and the public will be able to choose an acupuncturist belonging to a register vetted and approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. The BAcC's register has been accredited under a new scheme set up by the Department of Health and administered by an independent body which is accountable to Parliament.
