"The fundamental issue, of course, will be austerity. In 2008 we promised to help those with chronic depression and incapacity, and all those who were most vulnerable to the impact of the financial crash. But when you look at areas that voted for Brexit, rising antidepressant usage, and the pattern of service provision for their under-resourced talking therapies, it is clear we failed. Tim Kendall, national clinical lead, and Claire Murdoch CBE, national director for mental health, have both said the NHS cannot solve these problems on its own. Nor will the long-term plan for mental health be able to succeed unless our different disciplines and expertise can come together and support it. How do we re-engage our diverse disciplines and experts by experience with the real-life stories of social injustice, working lives beset by insecurity, with communities and people who feel left behind, unwanted? How do we make good on respect for human rights and dignity following the MHA Review? Our National Assembly will revisit these questions."
Jeremy Clarke CBE, Chair, New Savoy Conferences
