That this House commends the Mental Health Foundation, Mind, Rethink and the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health and Young Minds for their excellent report We Need to Talk, which puts the case for psychological therapies to be provided by the National Health Service; urges the NHS to implement the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidance on psychological therapies as a matter of urgency and to introduce waiting time measures for access to mental health treatments; further urges the Government to commit adequate resources to improve access to talking therapies; and calls on the Department of Health and other regulatory bodies to make a realistic assessment of the workforce and training implications of delivering psychological therapies to ensure substantive measures for public protection from malpractice and to support more research into psychological therapies.
