Digital therapies for anxiety and depression

NICE is to start assessing new digital therapies that will help treat more people with anxiety and depression.

Guided self-help, which can track people’s mood or advise on breathing exercises for example, is recommended by NICE guidance to help treat mild to moderate anxiety and depression.

As part of NHS England’s improving access to psychological therapies (IAPT) programme, NICE has been asked to assess digital applications or computer programmes, which will sit alongside face-to-face, phone and online therapy.
