Expert panel conclusions

Expert panel conclusions

  • Therapist and Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service feedback on Space from Depression (SilverCloud) was generally positive. The evaluation data and user feedback showed that it was an effective treatment for some users.

  • The IAPT expert panel therefore concluded that the case for adoption is partially supported for Space from Depression. They noted that Space from Depression is suitable for use in IAPT services when:

    • there is monitoring to identify and help people who stop engaging with the service

    • there is flexibility about how much the therapist and service user can communicate

    • there are clear plans to help service providers put Space from Depression into practice.
