The NHS Is Dangerously Under-Equipped To Help Mental Health Patients

Although real progress has been made recently as to how mental health patients are treated, the UK is still unable to cope with the scale of the crisis.

The stigma surrounding mental health is being broken down, as the subject has increasingly become a part of everyday conversation. 

Although this new and improved attitude is encouraging more and more people to seek help for their problems, they find themselves being let down by a system failing to provide help.

According to Mind, the harsh reality is one in four people in the UK will experience some form of mental health problem every single year.

This means there are potentially millions of people who are going to both the NHS and private healthcare services for support.

Unfortunately, many of these people are failing to get the proper help they need, especially due to the long waiting lists.
