Proportion of CCG and STP allocations spent on mental health services
This chart shows the proportion of CCG and STP base allocations spent on mental health services for each of the last four financial years for which spending data is currently available. The figures can be examined from a national perspective, CCG or STP level. You can also compare data with up to four other areas.

As part of the NHS Long Term Plan, the Government has committed to ensuring mental health services to continue to receive a growing share of the NHS budget, increasing by at least £2.3 billion a year in real terms by 2023/24.
The Mental Health Investment Standard (MHIS), set by NHS England, requires all CCGs in England to increase their planned spending on Mental Health services by a greater proportion than their overall increase in budget allocation each year.
Notes: These data also include spending on Learning Disability and Dementia services. However, it should be noted that the MHIS does not currently include spending on Learning Disability and Dementia services. Additional allocations should be made to CCGs during the 2019/20 financial year that will be reflected in final percentages for that year.
