Access to mental health services is based on clinical need, including for patients with Huntington’s disease. We are investing an additional £2.3 billion a year to expand mental health services in England by 2023/24. We have committed to increase access to National Health Service talking therapies, such as Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, to ensure that 1.9 million adults can receive support for conditions such as anxiety and depression.
