Prime minister Theresa May has announced a range of measures to \u2018transform\u2019 mental health support across the country. Tackling the \u2018burning injustice\u2019 of mental ill health would be part of the government\u2019s wider commitment to \u2018wholesale social reform\u2019, she told the Charity Commission\u2019s annual lecture. Mental ill health commonly affects younger people and those on lower incomes, with some estimates putting the annual economic and social cost at more than \u00a3100bn, close to the equivalent of the entire annual NHS budget. Among the plans announced are a \u2018rapid expansion\u2019 of digital and online mental health services, more alternatives to hospital care such as community clinics, a \u2018major thematic review\u2019 of young people\u2019s mental health services led by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and action to improve mental health support in the workplace. There will also be a review of the controversial \u2018health debt form\u2019, which can see people charged up to \u00a3300 for documentation from their GP to prove they have mental health issues. Not only was mental health \u2018dangerously disregarded as a secondary issue,\u2019 she said, it was also \u2018shrouded in a completely unacceptable stigma\u2019. The plans would start with \u2018ensuring that young people get the help and support they need and deserve\u2019 before issues became entrenched and risked blighting lives, she stated. \u2018This is a historic opportunity to right a wrong and give people deserving of compassion and support the attention and treatment they deserve\u2019. Chief executive of mental health charity Mind, Paul Farmer, said that although his organisation welcomed the announcement, the proof would be in the \u2018difference it makes to the day-to-day experience of the one in four who will experience a mental health problem this year\u2019, while Rethink Mental Illness said it was \u2018cautiously optimistic\u2019.
