£5.5m funding for mental health28th December 2011
The Welsh government has announced that it is investing £5.5m for patients with mental health problems to access more help from their GPs.
The cash will mean more patients have care plans tailored to their needs and will also see an expansion of an advocacy service to help them understand their legal rights. Health Minister Lesley Griffiths said the money would pay for some of the proposals in the Mental Health Wales Measure, which became law in 2010 with about £3.5m going towards support at a local level.
