Greater Manchester health bosses are gearing up to agree plans and business cases that can improve mental health – as each of the area’s ten boroughs are set to apply for a share of almost £11m designated for work that supports communities and the wellbeing of those who live there.

The funding is part of a major £134m four-year action plan to help to transform mental health in Greater Manchester, announced in July.

The overall investment programme – the biggest and most ambitious of its kind in the country – aims not only to put mental health on an equal footing with physical health, but to start to deliver the area’s vision of making sure that no child who needs mental health support will be turned away.

The cases will be heard by Christmas when more details will be made available.
