Ahead of next week’s budget, the Chancellor must ensure that spending on mental health services is ring-fenced and this vital area is properly funded.
The Government has announced хЃ1.4 billion funding over five years to deliver the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health and хЃ1.25 billion for the Future In Mind programme for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
This money is important but will not go far enough to meet rising demands on mental health services, here In St Helens and across the country.\n

According to Public Health England 16.8% of people in St Helens have reported suffering from depression and anxiety. In the UK one in four adults experiences at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any given year.
