Mastermind is a European Commission project which provides Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for patients with mild to moderate depression in Scotland.

The programme, explores the barriers to the roll-out of computerised CBT. It looks at the sharing of learning and best practice required in different cultural and healthcare structures. The project aims to replicate this type of intervention more widely in the EU.

Mastermind can provide many benefits for both patients and clinicians including:

  • Improved access to psychological therapies for patients.
  • Improved range of choice for patients on therapy.
  • Increased flexibility for patients in accessing psychological therapies.

The MasterMind project was developed in four health boards including: NHS Lanarkshire, NHS Grampian, NHS Fife and NHS Shetland. The work was originally established in NHS Forth Valley and NHS Tayside who have offered cCBT as one of their core psychological therapies since 2005 and 2007.

 

Currently, cCBT services in Scotland cover 44% of the total Scottish population. There were around 7,000 referrals in 2016 with 5,400 of these being received by the “MasterMind Boards”.   Around 80% of all referrals come from GPs while the remaining 20% come from clinical psychology and other mental health services.

Evidence shows a clinical benefit to patients from the first session with patients conditions improving as they progress through the treatment program.
