The circle of debt and mental health problems is well established. One in 11 people in the UK reports being in debt or arrears, and for people with mental health problems this rises to one in four. In May 2008 Mind published “In the red” based on a survey of almost 2,000 people with experience of both debt and mental health problems. This follow-up survey, “Still in the red”, reveals worrying numbers of people with mental health problems living below the Government-defined poverty line as they struggle to cope with debts. It surveyed almost 900 people living with mental health problems and found that: 45% were living on below £200 a week, rising to 54% among those in problem debt; over 80% felt they were often struggling to manage their finances, rising to 95% among those in problem debt; and almost 75% thought that their mental health problems had made their debt worse. This rose to over four-fifths among those in problem debt. This report concludes that knowledge and practice has clearly improved in a number of areas but there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Listening to experience: an independent inquiry into acute and crisis mental healthcare

Mind commissioned an independent panel to carry out an inquiry into acute and crisis mental health care. It ran a call for evidence, held hearings and visited a range of services. It asked: what do people in mental health crisis need; what is good about existing acute and crisis services – what would you like to protect or have more of; what are the problems in acute and crisis care; if services in your area are being reorganised, what impact is this having on acute and crisis care (if you know); and what changes in acute and crisis care do you want this campaign to achieve? This report found that while excellent crisis care does exist, there are problems with inpatient hospitals and community crisis teams including people struggling to get help, staffing problems, poor quality care environments and not enough treatment provided to help people recover. It also sets out a series of recommendations on how crisis care should be improved to give the best possible treatment to some of the most vulnerable people in NHS care.
