A recent article in the Metro suggested that more than 300 people turn up to A&E every day feeling depressed. This shocking statistic shows that many people are feeling unwell and they may not be getting the mental health help that they need.

Between March 2020 and March 2021, 114,000 people went to an A&E department because they were feeling depressed. It is concerning that all of these people felt so unwell that they decided to seek help this way.

During the pandemic, many people found that their mental health began to deteriorate. The Government spent an additional £500 million so extra help can be provided to those who are struggling. In addition to this, the Government is hoping to increase the number of NHS mental health staff by more than 27,000 by no later than 2024. It’s hoped that the additional money and staff numbers will help those who are in need. In the meantime, many people are relying on support in their local communities which, in some cases, can be lifesaving. 

Please ask for help if you are struggling. You do not have to go through your mental health struggles on your own.
