Projects to improve mental health across Wales with nearly £3.5 million in National Lottery grants

74 communities across Wales successfully applied to The National Lottery Community Fund for grants worth £3,401,711 this month. Many of the projects directly target improving mental health in communities across Wales. Although Mental Health Awareness day (10th October 2019) is an opportunity to draw the public’s attention to the impacts of poor mental health, many of the projects which received grants this month are tackling the issue every day. Grants are made possible thanks to people playing the National Lottery.
