star this property answer text <p>Over 900,000 people now access Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services each year, and the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health includes our commitment to expand services further to see a further one million more people treated for mental health problems every year by 2020. Although problem gambling is not listed amongst the provisional diagnosis categories that IAPT treats, IAPT practitioners would be able to treat common mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety which may affect people with gambling problems.</p><p> </p><p>A new version of the IAPT dataset is being developed and it is intended that gambling problems will be recorded in the revised dataset. This would enable us to better assess the impact of IAPT services on people with gambling problems.</p><p> </p><p>People who experience problems with gambling can access services in primary care and secondary care including specialised mental health and addiction services. There are a range of services available details of which can be found on the NHS Choices website. For example, Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust has a national problem gambling clinic which accepts referrals from all over the United Kingdom including those with mental health problems.</p>
