Public attitudes to mental health have come a long way and the sector has been promised an increase in spending of £2.3bn by 2023-24. As part of the sector’s NHS Long Term Plan commitments, core focuses will be on improvements to children and young people’s, community mental health services, 24/7 crisis services and liaison psychiatry. Longer term there will be new performance targets for the sector to meet, alongside the reconfiguration of funding structures.
