Mental Health patients still don’t have the same rights as physical health patients and services remain grossly underfunded.
The Liberal Democrats want equal funding and equal rights for mental health. We want increased staffing, reduced waiting times and reform of the outdated 1983 Mental Health Act.
The government have said they will reform mental health law in the next two years. Let’s make sure they get it right!
This is a once-in-a-generation chance to fix our broken system.
- Guarantee waiting time standards
- Reform the Mental Health Act
- Stamp out mental health stigma
- Increase funding for early intervention and community mental health services
