Only the Liberal Democrats are serious about supporting those with mental health needs.

Pulse, the GP publication, has investigated funding for Mental Health services in 2017/18 and found several areas in England are due to be hit, in total, by £35million of cuts. Walsall CCG is included.

Responding to this report, Lee Dargue, West Midlands LibDem spokesperson on Health, reacted angrily “The stigma against mental health is something Liberal Democrats proudly started to tackle in government. However, CCGs in Walsall are now having to cut their mental health service provision, due to Tory-led demands on cuts”.

Lee further added “Enough is enough. The scandalous lack of equal treatment between physical and mental health cannot go on any further. It’s clear that the Tories can’t be trusted on mental health funding, especially for young people where they aren’t even meeting their own funding requirements because of the crisis in NHS funding”1.

Lee finally said “And as for Jeremy Corbyn championing mental health – shouting so through a megaphone does nothing to help those in need. We need to have an effective opposition, as wekk as an honest debate about raising taxes to support the NHS and its services the Liberal Democrats are the only party offering both.” 

Warm words on mental health aren‘t enough – it’s time action backed up intention

Today the Education Policy Institute (EPI) released their latest report on their review of Mental Health provision for Children and Young People1 . The report showed a poor performance across the whole of England, mainly due to a “postcode lottery” of funding and service provision.
