We are putting over £12 billion a year into mental health services in England, with investment set to rise still further by an additional £2.3 billion a year by 2023/24.

We have also awarded over £22 million in cash grants to mental health, ambulance, social care, learning disabilities, autism and dementia charities to ensure they could meet increased demand as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, while continuing their day-to-day activities to help those in need.
