No health without mental health

Full praise to the coalition, and in particular the Deputy Prime Minister and Lib Dem colleague Paul Burstow, for their latest health initiative.  'No Health Without Mental Health' is designed to rid the so-called stigma attached to illnesses such as depression and anxiety by giving them the same importance, in terms of diagnosis and treatment, as physical health.

As 'Liberal Democrat News' reports today Nick and Paul have " delivered another key campaigning improve access to counselling for people with mental health problems, by continuing the roll out of cognitive and behavioural therapies".

What price the Tories on their own would have been so liberal and understanding in committing over £400m to an issue that affects 1 in 3 at a particular point in the journey through life.
