New recruitment drive to help 10,000 people with serious mental illness

£27 million has been announced for mental health charity Think Ahead to expand their mental health social work graduate programme.

More than 10,000 people living with serious mental illness will receive support from 480 new mental health social workers, thanks to a £27 million funding boost for the charity Think Ahead. The new funding – which has been welcomed by mental health charity Mind – will help recruit and train a new wave of mental health social workers, who will form a vital part of the response to coronavirus. Applications for the graduate places have opened.
