Digitally-assisted mental health therapies are already available in parts of the National Health Service. Work is currently in progress to have National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) approved digitally-assisted therapies available across the NHS by 2019/20. NHS England is currently working, with the help of NICE, to scope, develop and test these products over 2017/18.
