Mental health nurses to be posted in police stations

“Mental Health nurses are to be posted in police stations and courts in a £25m pilot scheme designed to ensure people receive the treatment they need and cut reoffending rates.

The government scheme, which will initially run in 10 areas and be rolled out across the rest of the country by 2017 if successful, was welcomed by mental health campaigners, confident that it would prove its worth.”
