New funding for safe places for people in mental health crisis

Government opens bidding to fund health based places of safety to stop those in mental health crisis being held in police cells. When a person is experiencing a mental health crisis they need care from healthcare professionals in the right place.

Too often the only safe place available is a police cell, which can add to the person’s suffering.

This £15 million fund will help to provide health and community based places of safety to prevent vulnerable people being held in police cells.
