Beat works with public sector partners across the United Kingdom to support people and their loved ones in their recovery journeys. We can provide non-clinical support quickly, effectively, and as early as possible, to complement the work of health professionals. We can provide some of our services free of charge. For other services we have to pass on our costs to you, but we never take a profit from our work with public sector partners.
