There is a crisis in mental health services in the UK. It’s time to act
Almost 7000 mental health nurses were lost from 2009 to 2018. Meanwhile, the number of doctors in specialist psychiatric training fell by 20%, and beds available for patients with serious mental health issues fell by over 8000.
That’s why we’re holding a one-day conference in September this year to take a closer look at the mental health crisis – what’s driving it, how government decisions have let it worsen over time, and what action we can take to set things right.
