There is a huge amount of people who are struggling with mental health issues in the UK.
Successive governments have promised funding and support for mental health services. However there are plenty of people who really need help.
This also goes for adult autism assessments, the waiting lists are too long. I waited fourteen months, then was only given 24 hours notice for both appointments. Now I’m back on a waiting list, until the end of March. The reason given is a backlog of reports to be compiled.
There are many people who will have to wait for years to get some help. There is something fundamentally wrong with the system.
People are struggling every day. This needs to change.
