Mental Health Bill

The following has been received from MIND – support their actions by having a vote! 

Will the Mental Health Bill be good for service users? Of course not! The Bill will divert scarce resources from already over-stretched services into the bureaucracy of forced treatment in the community, and it will deter people from seeking help when they’re unwell. Its focus on compulsion rather than compassion will fundamentally damage mental health services.

Vote now in the Community Care poll, go to the bottom right hand side on the home page.

The results will be printed in the next edition of Community Care, the biggest health and social care journal — read by professionals and policy makers.
