James Crouch started this petition to NHS and government

I have struggled with my anxiety and depression for most of my adult life, and finally built up enough courage to try and get some help. I spoke to my doctors and they referred me to the nhs. I had to wait 4 weeks to speak to somebody on the Phone to be told I have 20/20 anxiety and 21/27 depression... and I need help. They went on to tell me that’s they have no services to offer me for at least 10 months. So unless you have the money to pay for private therapy you are left in the same situation or getting worse. The service for people with mental health issues big or small should be there when needed. This would go along way to help reduces suicide rates in everyone who struggle to get help, and when they finally seek help it’s not there or not available. We need more funding, more mental health worker, and more people to be more open about  their struggles. Don’t be scared to tell people. it dosen’t help hiding it or bottling it up. We need to start talking!!!
