A Consensus Conference on psychological therapies for anxiety and depression concluded its work, in the interest of patients and their families, the universities system, continuing education agencies, National Health Service, researchers and Italian funding agencies. The committees of experts have reviewed the scientific literature and prepared a document that was submitted to a Jury, chaired by Silvio Garattini. These are some of the conclusions: (1) not all therapies should be considered first choice treatment, (2) some psychotherapies are cost-effective and more effica-cious than medication, (3) these psychotherapies are recommended by the most authoritative in-ternational guidelines. Psychotherapies are underutilized in the National Health Service, and pa-tients have to resort to the private market with an intolerable discrimination based on wealth. Methods of unproven efficacy are often used, and adequate information on recent scientific pro-gress is lacking. There is a need for information, training, organizational and transparency inter-ventions, with also deontological implications.
