The children and young people’s improving access to psychological therapies programme (CYP IAPT)
Improving child and adolescent mental health services
CYP IAPT is a service transformation programme that aims to improve existing child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) and transform services provided by the NHS and partners from local authority and third sector that together form local area CAMHS partnerships.
We've taken over the commissioning of this programme from NHS England and are planning to cover 100% of England by 2018. This may involve the creation of new collaboratives or the provision of satellite training centres managed by existing collaboratives. The involvement of children, young people and their families in the design and delivery of training remains paramount.
