In 2005 Lord Layard diagnosed depression as “Britain’s Biggest Social Problem”. The cost, he argued, of untreated common mental problems simply dwarfed the cost of investing in effective psychological therapies that could reduce the burden of disease to our economy and society. It was an unassailable argument that persuaded the Treasury to support a national IAPT program. And as one of its key architects in 2008, Lord Layard envisaged it would take us 6 years to build a NICE-compliant talking therapies service with capacity to begin to make a real impact. With under a year to go to judgment day the Coalition Government, which has supported IAPT with an additional £450M investment, has published what is probably its final policy position, Closing the Gap, setting out its 25 key priorities in mental health for a final delivery push by 2015. In relation to IAPT it states: “Over 900,000 people will benefit from psychological therapies every year”.
For this one-day conference James Morris MP will open by telling us about the important work of the All Party Parliamentary Group that he chairs looking at what we must do better and different in mental health. The conference will continue by focusing on the following topics:
“Effective support requires a joined up approach between health and employment services … (we) expect to see tangible changes in the next couple of years … we are actively incentivising CCGs to increase access to psychological therapies through the Quality Premium scheme”
Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister and Norman Lamb Minister of State for Care and Support 2014
