This paper sets out the rationale and process for the development of clinical guidelines, particularly as they apply to psychological therapies and mental health more generally. The methods by which they are produced are briefly reviewed and some commonly identified problems associated with guideline development are also discussed. The evidence for their effective implementation is reviewed and likely future development in clinical guidelines in mental health and psychological therapies are discussed.
