Mental illness treatment needs massive investment. The case is overwhelming | Richard Layard | Opinion | The Guardian
As is well known, many NHS commissioners, when short of money, cut mental healthcare. Last week Sue Bailey, the retiring president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, called the situation a "car crash", alluding to the fact that cuts in psychological therapy cause far more problems than they solve.

NHS mental health care in crisis: 'There is no hope for people like me' | Society | The Guardian
More than 600 readers answered the Guardian's request for stories – and what they depict is a profoundly broken system - Battles for diagnosis, lengthy waits for treatment, an over-reliance on drugs, and, frequently, an abject lack of compassion: this is the picture that people with mental health problems, their families and professionals paint of NHS mental health care. After the revelation that two-thirds of people with depression in the UK receive no treatment on the NHS,

The PTSD brains of children and soldiers - BBC News
Scientists have discovered that the brain structures of traumatised soldiers and children change in the same way. The research reveals that coping mechanisms to deal with extreme stress and abuse actually cause physical changes to the brain. Prof Eamon McCrory from University College London explains. // high alert on threat vigilance and threat detection! // need consistent positive experiences and emotional support! (more than talk therapy can give) - DBT, CBT, ... & trauma therapy. & being in a secure and safe, trusting environment. //&! bbc.in/20GVNxI - The children struggling with PTSD [...] Research suggests youngsters can show similar changes in their brain activity as those of soldiers in war zones.

Can call centre therapy solve the NHS mental health crisis? | Society | The Guardian
Fast-track treatment aims to ease growing problem in the UK, but critics say it is the clinical equivalent to online dating [...] [ mental health - a mental health crisis ] This is no fringe issue in the health of the nation. The NHS believes people with mental health problems die 15 to 20 years earlier than the average, but the system is struggling to cope. Lord Layard, a government adviser on mental health, identified mental health problems as “the biggest causes of misery in Britain today”, with an estimated 6 million people affected. [ needs massive investment, no call centres ] [...] Meanwhile 40% of mental health trusts saw spending cuts over the past two years and fewer than one in eight people who suffered a mental health crisis said they received appropriate care in 2015, according to the Care Quality Commission. The regulator concluded this was “unsafe and inherently unfair”. [ referring complex cases to call centre is neglect and malpractice ]

BBC One - Panorama, Hooked on Painkillers
[ Risk of physical dependency. Can processed foods be a crutch for emotional hang-ups, stress release, as a reward after a stressful day, week and develop 'emotional' dependency (quick fix, no stigma, no barriers to access, no stigma, label, prejudice -- vs -- mindfulness, meditation, therapy)? Same with the obvious bad habit (habit forming) to reward yourself with binge drinking on Friday and Saturday after your work and or the S.A.D takeout: prevalent amongst the precariat ("my reward after a hard working week"). Obvious coping mechanism. Soft drugs and accepted, without stigma, amongst society. ] Doctors in the UK are prescribing record doses of highly addictive painkillers.

How schizophrenia changed the whole course of my life - BBC News
[ Cinderella Service ] The medications helped almost straight away but what I really wanted to do was talk to somebody in therapy sessions. At the time there was a lack of funding for this type of treatment, something which continues to be a problem for people with mental illnesses today. With the medication, I began to make little steps towards recovery. I started talking a bit, and being able to wash and take basic care of myself. Anybody who says that a mental illness isn't disabling is wrong, it affected my whole body. Unfortunately, the medication took a toll on my physical health and by the end of the following year I had gained around ten stone (63.5kg) in weight due to the side effects. [...] It has taken me 20 years to get this far in recovery, and I do still have setbacks. [...] If we can challenge the stigma, get proper investment in mental health services, [...] then people will not be left as long as I was before they are able to make their own steps toward recovery.

Your mental health stories: 'I felt palmed off' - BBC Newsbeat
[ underfunded Cinderella Service ] However, a charity has found mental health services in England are turning away one in five children who are referred to them for treatment. The NSPCC says a lot of the time they did not meet the required "high clinical threshold". This wasn't a surprise to many of you. Nor our journalists who worked on our podcast series, The Story of Izzy Dix. Here is why. [...] They felt depressed and alone, they wanted counselling but instead were prescribed medication. Their stories not only give you an idea of the mental health problems many young people are dealing with on a daily basis, but also the scale of the problem facing the NHS. //&! bbc.in/1PpHZFH - Figures from 35 mental health trusts across England show that a total of 186,453 cases were referred by GPs and other professionals for help, but 39,652 children did not receive it. The most common reason was that the child did not meet the clinical threshold for receiving help from CAMHS.

Why CBT is falling out of favour | Life and style | The Guardian
‘Researchers have found that CBT is roughly half as effective in treating depression as it used to be’ [...] Perhaps every era needs a practice it can believe in as a miracle cure – Freudian psychoanalysis in the 1930s, CBT in the 1990s, mindfulness meditation today – until research gradually reveals it to be as flawed as everything else.
