Mental illness recovery linked to deprivation, report finds

Official statistics show a strong link between deprivation and the likelihood of recovering from anxiety and depression.

A report published by NHS Digital examines activity, waiting times and outcomes for the improving access to psychological therapies (IAPT) programme run by the NHS in England.

It found a strong relationship between deprivation levels and whether patients recover from mental illness after talking therapies such as counselling, CBT and peer support.
