Steve Brine backs better support for local mental health

Steve Brine has called for better mental health services in the South East at an event organised by the mental health charity Mind this week.

The Winchester & Chandler's Ford MP met with local campaigners and representatives from South East and Central Essex Mind and Solent Mind in Parliament on Tuesday 16th June to hear the experiences of people living with mental health problems in the South East.

Speaking after the event, he said: "I was delighted to see Solent Mind here today as part of big MIND lobby event to re-focus MPs on the mental health challenge. There was a strong turnout from our Department of Health team, which was good to see as this is a key issue both nationally and locally for me."

Louise Rubin, Parliamentary Manager at Mind, said: "Supporting constituents with mental health problems is one of the biggest challenges an MP faces today, so we were really delighted to see Steve at our event this week. Every year, mental health problems will affect one in four people in their constituency, which is more people than will develop heart disease or cancer.

"All parties have committed to valuing mental and physical health equally and we've now reached a critical stage in determining the future of mental health and wellbeing in our country. Much of the power to make a difference now sits with local decisions makers so MPs play a vital role in securing good quality support for people in their constituency, as well as promoting mental health at a national level."

Steve Brine: Due to the way the data are gathered and extracted from the system, the numbers below detail the number of audits with unsatisfactory outcomes, rather than the number of establishments with unsatisfactory outcomes. That means that one establishment might have received more than one unsatisfactory outcome during the period accounted for. The data below are for England and Wales. From August...
