The Improving Access to Psychological Therapy programme (IAPT) continues to offer increasing numbers of people in England access to National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence-approved therapy for mental health conditions. We will invest £400 million in the next four years to ensure the full roll-out of IAPT. We expect this will mean that between April 2011 and the end of the spending review period:
3.2 million people will access IAPT, receiving guided self help or therapy;
2.6 million of them will complete a course of therapy treatment; and up to 1.3 million (50% of those treated) will move to measurable recovery.
This investment is in addition to the funding primary care trusts have already received for talking therapies.
