A damning report reveals the crisis in England’s Mental Health Services

There have been years of under investment and empty pledges supporting the view that Mental Health Services are the Cinderella Service of the NHS.

Budgets for Mental Health Services fell by 2% between 2013-15 and are projected to rise by only 0.3% but there is a 10% increase in the number of people sectioned under the Mental Health Act over the past year.

The Prime Minister has promised more funding and to put mental and physical health care on an equal footing.

You can find out more about the report, which was published last month here.
