MEN­TAL HEALTH WAIT­ING LISTS FEAR

Gloucestershire Echo - - HEALTH & LIFESTYLE -

IN A sur­vey of 1,000 GPS, con­ducted on be­half of the men­tal health char­ity Stem4, al­most all (99%) feared that young peo­ple in the UK risk harm while wait­ing for spe­cial­ist men­tal health treat­ment.

Most GPS (90%) also thought men­tal health ser­vices for young peo­ple had de­te­ri­o­rated over the past two years.

Stem4’s founder Ni­hara Krause said: “Even though this Gov­ern­ment has promised more fund­ing, noth­ing much has changed, ex­cept that we now know that more chil­dren and young peo­ple have a men­tal health con­di­tion.”
