We are committed to investing an additional £2.3 billion a year in mental health services in England by 2023/24 under the NHS Long Term Plan. Beyond that, funding for 2022-23 financial year for England is subject to the Department’s Spending Review 2021 and business planning outcomes. Funding in the rest of the United Kingdom is a matter for the devolved administrations.
