    A survey of NHS trusts found that mental health leaders expected demand to increase this year, according to the BBC.

    The poll by NHS Providers suggests the following:

    • There is an increase in the number of ambulance call-outs to people suffering from suspected mental health issues
    • There is a need for more staff for service delivery

    Louise Rubin of the charity, Mind, said:

    “We are concerned that people coming forward and seeking help for mental health problems are not getting the support they need early enough, which means they are more likely to become more unwell and reach crisis point.”

    A Department of Health spokeswoman also said:

    “We’re committed to seeing mental health services improve on the ground.”

    She also said that mental health services were given £11.6bn last year but by 2021 services would be receiving an extra £1bn a year.
