A range of mental health issues are to be targeted by the new plan that is being rolled out by the government in the face of the surge in mental health support required as a result of the events of the last year.​

Mental Health Recovery PlanThe plan, published in March this year, aims to specifically target those who may have been most affected, such as young people and frontline workers.

The NHS will be expanding its IAPT service with an additional £38 million backing from the government to target a range of issues such as anxiety, depression and PTSD. Specialist therapists will also be trained for more complex work or severe mental illness.

Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said: “As part of our response to this global pandemic we not only want to tackle the public health threat of coronavirus but ensure our clinicians have the resources to deal with the impact on people’s mental health.”
