Your Friend,


  1. Here’s a story from Rethink in the UK:

    I’m writing with great news. Today is a huge victory.

    A year ago over 10,000 of you joined us in demanding that Jeremy Hunt, the UK Secretary of State for Health, start listening to mental health patients. Since 2009 there has been no system for asking patients about the care and treatment they have had in inpatient care, while people with physical health problems were routinely asked for their feedback. We thought this was grossly unfair so together we raised our voices and asked Jeremy Hunt to bring back the mental health inpatient survey.

    Because of the action you took, a plan for inspecting mental health services has been announced. If implemented, this will include gathering the views of mental health patients. We hope the information that is gathered will be used to drive up standards and pinpoint services which are letting people down.

    This represents a significant step towards mental and physical health being treated equally. Everyone, regardless of whether they’ve got asthma or bipolar disorder should be entitled to the same quality of care and treatment.

    This goes to show that when we act together, we can make things change for the better. We’ve had an incredible victory but there is so much more to do. I want to ask if you will join me in supporting our new #weneedtotalk campaign.

    We want all people with severe mental illness to have access to talking therapy, when they need it.

    Will you stand up and join me?

    Best wishes,

    Paul Jenkins

    Chief Executive
