Mental health sufferers need more than empty promises

Despite active discussion on mental health and politicians pledging to make it a priority, little appears to have changed. Around 75 per cent of those suffering from mental health issues will not receive help or treatment, due to a fear of coming forward and a lack of resources for them to access. Less than one per cent of each local authority’s public health budget is spent on mental health on average, and in 2016 13 local authorities spent nothing at all, despite the public health act of 2013.
