1 in 4

In recent years MH services and the MH voluntary sector have created a small army of MH and ex-MH service users who are paid to represent all other service users views. Some of these people - and some havent used services for 15 years or more - earn huge amounts of money from mental health without having any real linkage to ordinary MH service users who consequently dont get a look in.

We would like to see public money and charitable donations earmarked for MH to go straight towards providing better treatment and care for everyone with MH issues rather than straight into the pockets of these stooges.

Please find out what your money will be used for before donating to the major MH charities as ' User Involvment ' schemes are taking funding and resources away from frontline treatment and care.
