People in the South West of England who are at risk of experiencing a mental health crisis will be able to access new support services under plans announced by the Government to give projects across the country a share of a £15 million fund.
The Beyond Places of Safety Scheme will fund clinics, crisis cafés, and other community services designed to prevent people from reaching crisis point, as well as supporting new approaches and facilities for those who do.
The South West region is set to get over £2m as part of the Beyond Places of Safety Scheme. The five projects which will receive funding are:
- Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust
- Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust
- Dorset Health Care University NHS Foundation Trust
- Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
- Community Education Providers Network (CEPN), Plymouth
A total of 51 projects nationally will receive a cash boost in order to realise plans to improve support.
