What would you like to see from the NHS' mental health services? | Society | The Guardian

This month, the Guardian is undertaking a huge project reporting the ins-and-outs of the NHS.

Next week, we’ll be concentrating on the NHS’ mental health services, and we’d like your help to do so. In 100-200 words we’d like you to tell us what you’d like to see from the NHS’ mental health services. In a perfect world, what would the services look like? Perhaps this could draw on your own experiences with mental health services, whether good or bad. Or maybe there are things you’d like to see changed.

Share your experiences via the form below and we’ll use the best submissions in our coverage.

Is this just for NHS England or for all NHS services in Britain?

It's just that the Guardian is mainly an English newspaper although it is distributed all over the UK and we have our own NHS here in Scotland.

I would like Calderdale NHS NOT to be cutting the only long term therapy in the area for spurious reasons without consultation with is technically illegal. It has and still is saving my life and many others lives, there is NOTHING free to replace it and I am very scared that I am losing the only support I have. Please see my post under the treatments section and the petition to 'save art psychotherapy calderdale' on change.org. above. THANKS FOR SIGNING!
