This Mental Health Awareness Week Keep Our NHS Public, Mental Health – Time for Action and Health Campaigns Together are launching the Mental Health Crisis Summit.

Chronic underfunding has pushed mental health services to the brink, and the problem is getting worse. Understaffing, cuts and failure to provide early interventions for mental health patients is putting unprecedented pressure on A&E departments, emergency services and beds. Patients are being forced to travel further, and suffer worsening health, as they wait longer for treatment.

We've called an urgent one-day conference in September this year to take a closer look at the mental health crisis:

Dr Sonia Adesera, a trainee GP and activist told us:

"You see more and more people going to A&E with mental health issues, more police time is getting taken up trying to support people with mental health issues.

"The number of people being detained under the Mental Health Act increased by 47 per cent over the past decade. That's people getting sectioned because their mental health is getting so bad as we are not supporting them in the communities."

Speakers:

Jonathan Ashworth MP Shadow Secretary for Health, Ken Loach film director and campaigner, Denise McKenna Mental Health Resistance Network and service user, Kevin Courtney NEU General Secretary, Ian Hodson National President BFAWU, Rachel Bannister Mental Health Time for Action, mother and service user, Dr Louise Irvine Health Campaigns Together, Tom Madders Young Minds, Elizabeth Cotton Surviving Work, David Munday mental heath lead Unite the Union, Catherine Gamble professional lead for Mental Health RCN, Michelle Joseph actress, educator and service user, Dorothy Gould National Survivors User Network and service user, Dr Vic Chapman from the Royal Free, Cath Wakeman OBE trauma therapist, Dr Nihal Fernando Consultant Psychiatrist, Rashaun Pacquette Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and service user, and many more...
