Join us at the 11th Annual New Savoy Conference, Psychological Therapies in the NHS Conference: A New Deal for Depression: Happy 70th Birthday NHS!

“In the next few weeks the committee reviewing evidence for NICE will make its final recommendations for a new depression guideline. Ever since Lord Layard dubbed depression Britain’s biggest social problem, what NICE recommends determines what the NHS delivers. So, a new depression guideline is a significant landmark that will shape psychological therapy provision in the next decade.

What will a new deal look like – will it change the game? For Jeremy Hunt and the Prime Minister, the government’s £2.4 Bn. in the Five Year Forward View for mental health speaks for their commitment. So, it was instructive to see Simon Stevens, NHS England’s Chief Executive, dangling the prospect of reneging on this deal ahead of the budget. And you only need look at Health questions in Parliament to hear the same statistics repeated in answer to almost every question: we are investing more, and treating more people than ever before, thanks to IAPT. In other words, mental health has achieved the status of political football.” (Health Care Conferences UK)
