It’s a little late, however I thought I’d comment on it: World Mental Health Day. I attended an event at Pendleton Gateway on Friday, for the Celebrating Diversity community group. I went up to the front to let everyone know that FINALLY the government has agreed on setting up designated waiting times to access mental health services.
If you have a physical illness, such as cancer, then you are provided with mandated waiting times to be seen, however with mental health this hasn’t been the case! Many people were waiting up to 18 month just to be seen for an initial appointment!
