A huge £134m action plan to start to transform mental health in Greater Manchester has been launched.
The investment – the biggest and most ambitious of its kind in the country – aims not only to put mental health on an equal footing with physical health but to start to deliver Greater Manchester’s vision of making sure that no child who needs mental health support will be turned away.
And with nearly 60 per cent of the cash – £80m – supporting the mental health needs of children, young people and new mums, it also reflects the commitment to increase the proportion of the budget focused towards young people.
The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, has described the programme as “potentially life-changing” for thousands of people.
