Mental Health Funding Boost for Hastings

Young people and parents are set to benefit from extended mental health services in Hastings, backed by a £600,000 annual investment from the government’s Opportunity Area programme. The funding will develop the advice and support services available for young people in Hastings to improve their emotional wellbeing at home, school or further education, the Education Secretary, Damian Hinds announced during a visit to Sussex Coast College in Hastings last week to mark Mental Health Awareness Week.
