Lottery grant to aid work in India.
For the past five years BasicNeeds, in Leamington, has been providing treatment to patients in Bihar and Jharkhand.
Now they have received pounds 301,817 from the Big Lottery Fund so they can continue their work.
Chris Underhill, the charity's founder director, said the award was "wonderful news".
He said: "It means that we can carry on our vital work in Northern India and expand and grow it.
"Thousands of mentally ill people are suffering every day.
"This grant means that we can give them hope for the future."
