Mental health to be debated in Commons

Mental health to be debated in Commons
8th June 2012

Mental health is set to be debated in the House of Commons for the first time in years on June 14th.

In what may be a landmark move, the issue will take centre stage and MPs will be able to discuss the issues that affect millions of Britons with mental health problems.

Consequently, the charity Mind is calling for people to get in touch with their local MP to share their experiences of mental health and offer suggestions on what is needed to improve services and support for patients in the UK.

It is hoped that this will indicate to MPs the importance of their attendance to the debate and ensure the problems that affect those with mental health complications get properly addressed.

The debate could prove crucial in improving the life of patients across the country.

With one in four people experiencing mental health problems every year, Mind has welcomed the measure and is encouraging the public to become involved.
