LIVERPOOL CHARITIES SAY NEW £150m MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE FUNDING IS A 'SMALL BEGINNING'

The investment up to 2024/25 will better support people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, mental health crises


Liverpool charities have reacted to PM Rishi Sunak's announcement that mental health services will get an extra £150m funding.


The funding up to 2024/25 will be used for 150 new projects to support mental health urgent and emergency care services. The move has been announced in a bid to "alleviate" pressure on the NHS services.


Shantanu Kundu, the founder and director of Be Free Campaign, a Liverpool charity that gives people the tools to look after their mental health, and Kellie Rostron, operational manager at Mary Seacole House, a Liverpool mental health charity for BAMER (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic & Refugee) communities, have shared their thoughts on the announcement.
