Mental health charity funding falls

31st May 2012

Funding for mental health services run by the charity Mind has been cut.

The charity’s 166 branches across England and Wales have reported a total reduction of £6.3m (5.7%) in support for services for people with mental illnesses at a time that there has been a surge in demand from people requiring help. Branch funding comes mainly through contracts with the NHS and local authorities. With their total value now £105m, the charity said this meant 13,915 people had lost out on its support as a result.
