Silver Cloud Economic IAPTs - online treament

Our Theme is working with SilverCloud Health, a provider of online therapeutic solutions to support
and promote positive behaviour change and mental wellness. SilverCloud Health is collaborating with
ScHARR, University of Sheffield, to develop and conduct a trial-based economic evaluation of internetdelivered
interventions for symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders within the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme.

This is a study to evaluate the clinical and cost-effectiveness of internet-delivered interventions for symptoms of depression and anxiety disorder in Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT).

Depression and anxiety are common mental health disorders worldwide.  The UK’s IAPT programme treats people with anxiety and depressive disorders. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is widely used, with computerised and internet-delivered CBT  (cCBT and iCBT) being a suitable IAPT approved treatment.  iCBT has a large empirical base for treating depression and anxiety disorder.  The cost-effectiveness and impact of these interventions in the longer-term is not routinely assess by IAPT services.  

The study is a parallel-group, randomised controlled trail examining the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of iCBT for depression and anxiety disorders against a waitlist control group.
