Free mental health therapy

My father was found dead in his flat in February 2017. It is unclear when he died however it is obvious he was let down by the NHS as a sufferer of HIV borderline personality and diabetes. He had forgotten his diabetic medication and suffered ketoacidosis which cost him his life. He had been dead for at least 14 days and no one responsible for his wellbeing noticed until it was too late. He was losing his sight his hearing and his ability to walk yet due to his age of 54 was not eligible for a bungalow and lived in a fifth floor flat unable to visit the outside world at times. As his 28 year old daughter at the time I have been denied counselling on the NHS and am being asked to go private by my doctor's. I have been provided no support for my loss just as he was provided little support which surmounted to his death. 

This petition is to urge all mental health treatments and therapies to become and remain free on the NHS to re instate IAPT to provide Free professional treatment for mental health because without a strong mind we become prisoners within ourselves and live a half life of remorse and regret.
