Funding for mental health services will grow as a share of the overall NHS budget over the next five years, and the NHS long-term plan states that this will form “a new ringfenced local investment fund worth at least £2.3 billion a year by 2023/24.” This investment will enable further service expansion, for example new mental health crisis services for people of all ages and more mental health support in schools.
