Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Register applications

About IAPT

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme was created to provide improved access to evidence-based psychological therapies for people who require the help of mental health services, particularly those presenting with anxiety disorders and depression.

Central to the delivery of the programme is the IAPT-trained workforce of psychological therapists, comprising two core roles - Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) and High Intensity Practitioner (HI). The IAPT workforce is specifically trained to deliver low and high intensity interventions for people with anxiety disorders and/or mild, moderate and severe depression in a system of stepped care. Further information about the IAPT programme and its workforce is available on the NHS's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies website.
