£500,000 for Cumbrian mental health project

A £500,000 grant has been awarded to a new mental health project in Cumbria.

The development funding means that pupils in the area will take part in a pilot project in the new school year.

The local partnership will then use this to work up long term plans.

The funding comes from the Big Lottery Fund's £75m HeadStart programme which, with a focus on schools, aims to develop ways of dealing with mental health issues before they become deep-rooted problems.
