Why mental health first aid should be taught in every school – to the pupils and the teachers

“Of £250m a year originally budgeted for ‘children and young people’s mental health’, there has been a £77m underspend this year. These figures highlight the gulf between what Conservative Ministers promise on mental health, and what they actually do” more  Neha Shah from the Independant

Would also like an ‘Open Dialogue‘ approach to be part of mainstream NHS and for Social Workers, Mental Health Care Nurses, GPs and Psychiatrists – to be trained in this approach – as a matter of urgency. It will save lives, improve quality of lives and save money.

Controversial – but not if you or someone you love could become effected – perhaps money to fund this could come from increasing the tax on Drug Companys producing anti-psychotic medication? especially those which produce significant side effects which effect someones physical health and tougher guidelines even penaltys for those dispensing them.
