Mental Health Round-Up

I’m currently on some funky medication that’s making it almost impossible to write a coherent blog post; so in lieu of some random drivel I’ve decided to do a little round-up of mental health issues that have been making the news recently:

NHS Mental Health Care: The Guardian

This is an article pointing out the lack of beds for mental health patients on the NHS and the potential consequences.

Young People and Mental Health: Huffington Post

An interesting article about the need for a focus on mental health care for young people.

Labour, Benefits and Mental Health: New Statesman

Exploring Labour’s stance on benefit sanctions and the impact on mental health.

Skype and Mental Health: BBC

Backlash against plans to treat depressed patients using Skype.

Hope you’re all having a lovely Monday, see you for something coherent on Wednesday!

’til next time,

Wren x
