Mental health appointment applauded by charity

Grays England. The south Essex constituency of Thurrock is a three-way battle with the UK Independence Party candidate Tim Aker

Patel described the global mental health situation as "extremely bleak", chiming with a recent World Health Organization report stating it should be explicitly included in global policy as suicide kills more young people than any other cause worldwide.

Health minister Jackie Doyle-Price will be charged with ensuring mental health remains a top priority as the National Health Service receives new funding.

Mrs May is quoted as saying: "We can end the stigma that has forced too many to suffer in silence".

Almost 4,500 people commit suicide every year in England.

"As our chairman has said we would like the new minister to come and meet with some Papyrus trustees and many parent whose children's suicide may have been prevented, whether that will happen is another matter".

Tuesday's opening session was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who previously launched the Heads Together mental health campaign with Prince Harry.

"There is a long road to travel to get there", he added.

The government's new suicide prevention minister once said she would "sooner jump off Beachy Head" than defect from the Conservatives, it has been revealed.

Poor mental ill health can often be identified by the age of 14 meaning the focus of the governments' strategy will be on the mental health of young people. Organizations, ministers and representatives from more than 50 countries will continue to discuss the many issues surrounding mental health in the capital today.

"In my time as health minister, I have met many people who have been bereaved by suicide, and their stories of pain and loss will stay with me for a long time", Doyle-Price said in a statement. The charity receives no government support for this service which is funded by charitable giving. "This ministerial appointment and the funding for Samaritans suggests that the government accepts such a position".

Marjorie Wallace, the chief executive of the mental health charity Sane, applauded the announcement but also warned that the government had not made enough improvements since it pledged to tackle mental health issues two years ago.
