Mental health services in Suffolk are set for improvement with new buildings and extra staff planned for this year.
The Suffolk Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust has announced a £23.3m development project has been approved.
Building work on the redevelopment of St Clements and new work at Ipswich Hospital are due to begin in March.
More staff are to be recruited for a new project developed with the charity MIND to change the way primary care services are delivered in the county.
Last year the trust saw a rise in almost a third of people being successfully treated for substance misuse.
In December the service to support carers of looked after and adopted children was modernised.
