Link – Delays in NHS mental health treatment ‘ruining lives’
People who need help, and have actually gone looking for help are unable to get it because the UK just doesn’t have it available.
“A Royal College of Psychiatrists survey of the experience of 500 diagnosed mental health patients found that some had waited up to 13 years to get the treatment they needed.”
Can you imagine someone with cancer, or liver damage, or even a broken leg having to wait 13 years to get treatment? Well no, you can’t because they would be long gone.
How many people are we losing while they wait for help? We don’t even know.
