Lib Dems will give millions EXTRA for #MentalHealth in #Peterborough

Lib Dems would make waiting times for mental health care match those for physical health care.

The Liberal Democrats would add another £1 billion for mental ill health care through putting a penny on income tax.

This would equate to approximately £14,000,000 of additional health funding being spent in Cambridgeshire tackling the “historic injustice” faced by people with mental ill health.

Health, particularly mental health is a key issue on the doorstep.

People want action, not just words, neither Labour nor the Conservatives have outlined how they will fund mental health services.

Lib Dems want to invest in improving waiting time standards for mental health care in Peterborough, and the scandalous use of force against people with mental ill health and prioritise national action to dramatically reduce the number of people who take their own lives.

The Liberal Democrats are the real opposition to the Conservatives in Peterborough, and the only party fighting for genuine equality for those who suffer from mental ill health.

Lib Dems want to end out of area placements, ensuring those admitted to hospital for mental ill-health are able to be treated close to home.
