Shropshire has just been allocated £312 million, we need £12 million of that to be spent on Children, Adolescent & Adult Mental Health Services.
Why is this important?
Our mental health services have been so dangerously underfunded, there aren't enough Psychiatrists, Psychologists, mental health nurses to support the thousands of children & adults who have a neurological & /or mental health problem, to enable them to function. We need a service that is fit for purpose, especially since January, when a teenage lad with aspergers wasn't deemed to be in crisis & was given an appointment for 3 months time. He sadly couldn't wait that long & walked in front of an early morning train.
We need to tell the MP's of Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin & NHS Management that mental health needs a decent percentage of this funding, before we lose anymore of our community!
