      Threw himself in front of a car on his way home and died a few days later.

      Horrific story but shows the pressure that is put on the NHS and it's impact on MH treatments

      It's not just about Funding, (although I do 100% agree) but it's also privatising as well. When Companies are putting Profits ahead of Patient care. It's bad here in Essex, they meant to be stripping EPUT of their contract and they have been allowed to resubmit a bid. WTF. Family Mosaic have sold off their Hostels that had waiting lists and it's becoming Affordable flats and posh Flats. Affordable at 300k. But on the Plus side, if I do end up in hospital, I can do my shopping as they plan to build a Shopping centre onto the Hospital, A WHSmiths, Burger place and More, there was rumours of a Wilkinsons. Might as well have a Pub, Betting Shop and casino whilst we had it. All in the name of profit that the NHS will not see.

        No one can argue about funding issues that is a real problem that most of us would agree on.

        One of the biggest drains on services, however, is actually the people who want to access it. Not all of those people have a definable/diagnosable/treatable mental health problem. Some have personality disorders/psychopathy and others have milder mental health issues 'the worried well' that don't need secondary care input. We've also stopped offering a dual diagnosis (mental health and addiction) service so clients of this nature tend to get bounced between services. Chicken and egg type stuff.
