"s'apprêter à" means "to get ready for something."  Do I have to use "y" to merely say "I have to get ready" as in "Il m'y faut m'apprêter."  also, is "to get ready to [verb]" "s'apprêter à [verb]" (example: s'apprêter à partir."  

merci d'avance

No I don't think you would need to say "Il  faut m'y apprêter." (note the position of the "y -even though it may not be required) "  I am not sure that it would even be very common to  use the "y" .

So I think "Il  faut m' apprêter." would be more usual.

Also I do think that "s'apprêter à partir." is the right way to use  it.

 

But  I am not a native speaker so I might be wrong.

On peut dire:
Il faut m'apprêter à partir..

ou, par exemple :  dans une heure je dois partir, il faut m'y apprêter / il faut que je m'y apprête..

Mais "Il m'y faut m'apprêter" n'est pas correct
