Big response to campaign to give more priority to Mental health

December 10, 2014 5:09 PM

Hinckley and Bosworth Lib Dems took to the streets to promote the cause of better mental health treatment.

Cllr Michael Mullaney was joined by other local Lib Dem colleagues manning a market stall on Hinckley's Castle Street urging people to sign a petition in support of the cause.

"One in four of us will experience mental health problems at some time in our lives and yet only £1 in every £9 of NHS spending is on specialist mental health services," said Michael Mullaney.

"Mental health has been neglected by consecutive governments but Lib Dems are changing that. We have written into law equality for mental health with physical health and we are introducing the first ever waiting time standards for mental health.

"Many local residents were interested in the campaign and signed up in support of the mental health action plan for improving mental health care."
