Trend in IAPT referrals and mental health staff


Published: 05/08/2021


These trends are indexed to 2011/12 and are based on the number of IAPT referrals and the number of full-time equivalent mental health staff as at March of each reporting year. The data uses the new definition of mental health workforce – this way of counting the workforce focuses on those staff who are specifically providing or supporting the provision of mental health care in a wide variety of ways. It excludes staff who might work at a mental health trust but who are not involved with providing the care.
