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.
