'Shocking discrimination' in mental health services

NHS managers in England have been accused of "shocking discrimination" in commissioning mental health services.

The Mental Health Policy Group from the London School of Economics said three-quarters of people with depression or anxiety got no treatment.

The committee of senior academics and medical professionals described this as a "real scandal".

Care Services Minister Paul Burstow said mental health should be treated as seriously as physical health issues.

Is that really discrimination or a scaremongering clickbait headline and just due to a postcode lottery?

Re: 'Shocking discrimination' in mental health services

Some news articles can make the world seem horrible, but I keep my mind away from that kind of thing. I don't need to read articles that are about a minority - I hope - situation. That isn't to say reporting events is not important - it is - BUT there is also good in the world and we need positive news stories, too.

Again, though, I don't disregard such an important post on here.
