Offer annual mental health check-ups for UK citizens

This petition had 193 supporters

1 in 4 people in the United Kingdom suffer from mental health problems every year. Almost 6,000 people committed suicide in the year 2010 alone. The UK has one of the highest self harm rates in Europe. Despite these shocking facts, the NHS allocates less than 12% of its funding to mental health. If the NHS provided annual psychological check ups, many more cases would be diagnosed at a stage where it is possible to make a difference.
