The Centre aims to be:
· an effective critical voice supporting and informing best policy and practice in the delivery of psychological therapies at a time of radical change;
· a conduit to communicate the experience, concerns and achievements of those commissioning and delivering services;
· a means to give voice to the needs and experience of those who might use psychological therapies; and
· a research and policy body equipped to promote well-being in a way that empowers individuals, families and communities.
The Centre has published two Research Papers and a major report on the introduction of a market in psychological therapies in primary care: Mental Health’s Market Experiment.
