The Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, and Health Minister Paul Burstow announced today that the ambitious Children and Young People's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP IAPT) programme will receive an extra investment of up to £22 million over the next three years. This is in addition to the £8 million per year for four years that had previously been secured. The new resources will be used to
- extend the geographical reach of the collaboratives
- extend training to two further therapies that address depression, eating disorders, self-harm, and conduct problems with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- develop e-learning packages for professionals.
