In the Mind: Calls for more mental health facilities

Charities in Wales have called for more suitable places for people suffering a mental health crisis.

Figures show more than 500 people experiencing a mental health crisis in Wales were held in a police cell last year because there were no hospital beds available.

The only crisis house in Wales is the Coed Arian Crisis House run by the charity Gofal, in partnership with Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.

The Welsh government said spending on mental health services in Wales has risen.
