Owen Kelly started this petition to NHS and

Therapy in the UK costs around £40 to £60 per session. I hope to make this free as the UK government have constantly brushed this to the side despite paying MPs £30 for food per day. Why should therapy cost so much when a main cause of mental health issues is money? Mental health issues can be classed as a disease, whilst all physical diseases and problems are dealt with by the NHS, people with mental health issues are left on a 2-3 year waiting list or a forced to pay ridiculous fees for something that should be free. People have lost jobs due to mental health reasons and I understand that there’s occupational therapists but this isn’t good enough, it should be mandatory for the public to receive professional therapy for free to keep this country on its feet.
