The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health set out plans for expanding Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services so that they can treat people with long-term health conditions, such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease. This work is underway, with many integrated IAPT services providing physical care and psychological therapies.

Under the NHS Long Term Plan, by 2023/24, an additional 380,000 adults and older adults will be able to access National Institute for Health and Care Excellence-approved IAPT services.
