What is IAPT?
Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services provide evidence-based psychological therapies to people with anxiety disorders and depression.
We assessed digitally enabled therapies for anxiety, depression and medically unexplained symptoms which offer the potential to expand these services further. Read about how we assessed these therapies.
What is digitally enabled therapy?
Digitally enabled therapy is therapy content delivered online or through mobile applications which allows learning to be achieved through patient self-study. This is reinforced and supported by trained therapists.
