Stewart Jackson MP said:

“I strongly welcome the Prime Minister’s determination to tackle mental health issues with these welcome announcements. They will make a real difference in supporting people across Peterborough.”

The Prime Minister will announce almost a billion pounds of investment to enhance mental health services across the country.

The Prime Minister’s plans will include:

  • £290 million of new investment over the next 5 years to provide mental healthcare for new mums
  • £247 million to invest in liaison mental health services in emergency departments
  • over £400 million to enable 24/7 treatment in communities as a safe and effective alternative to hospital
  • expanded services to help teenagers with eating disorders – as anorexia kills more than any other mental health condition
