Political commitment to the programme has been strong, and the Government allocated
over £300 million to the first phase roll-out of the programme in the 2007 spending review.

As part of the 2010 Spending Review, and in line with ministerial commitments such as
those outlined in the Coalition Agreement and No health without mental health, a four-year
plan for talking therapies13

was funded, with a further allocation of over £400 million up

until 2014/15.

The programme is expected to generate net savings in excess of £300 million by March
2015 through:

• NHS savings through reductions in healthcare usage

• Exchequer savings through helping 75,000 people move off welfare benefits

• economic gains to employers through reduced sickness absences.

By the end of 2016/17, a net financial benefit of £4,640 million14

is expected as the
provision and utilisation of accessible evidence-based therapies increases. This will be
due primarily to prevention and early intervention particularly encouraging reductions
in sickness absence.
