About The Event
Current statistics suggest that mental health research only receives 5.8% of total annual health research spending. A vastly disproportionate amount given the widespread effects that mental health issues can have on the population. Overstretched services are focused on coping with crisis, rather than prevention and operate with long waiting times and a complete lack of specialised services in some regions of the UK.
Continued cuts to public spending and the increasing levels of poverty feed into the cyclic nature of the many causes of mental health issues. The most common mental health problems include depression and anxiety, both which are distributed according to a gradient of economic disadvantage across society.
Together we can help those who are in need of our supports.
