Hundreds of people took to the streets of Norwich today to protest against cuts to mental health services.
The march was organised by Norfolk and Suffolk Mental Health Crisis, a campaign group set up by front-line health staff and people who rely on the support of the NHS.
The Prime Minister will announce almost a billion pounds of investment to enhance mental health services across the country.
- £290 million to provide specialist care to mums before and after having their babies
- first ever waiting time targets to be introduced for teenagers with eating disorders and people experiencing psychosis
- nearly £250 million for mental health services in hospital emergency departments
- over £400 million to enable 24/7 treatment in communities as safe and effective alternative to hospital
