A Mental health special

Looking after our minds is increasingly important; especially since a new Public Health England report estimated that one in ten young people in London suffer from some significant mental health problems.

Yet the level of government investment in support and prevention services is shockingly low, with just 0.9% of local authority health budgets in England spent on mental health in 2015/16 – down from 1.4% in 2013/14.

One thing we can do about this is to share more information about mental health and how it can affect our lives. This is the spring 2017 mental health special.

Our thanks to John Lyon’s Charity for making this project possible.
