The IAPT programme is a large-scale initiative that aims to increase significantly the availability of NICE-recommended psychological treatments for depression and anxiety disorders within NHS commissioned services in England. This report details the origins of the programme and highlights progress and successes after the first three full financial years of roll-out. It also outlines future requirements, particularly in meeting the financial commitments to 2015 in the Spending Review 2010 and political commitments outlined in the Coalition Agreement and other documents, together with plans to meet them.
