Tories cannot be trusted on mental health


I've warned the Tories can’t be trusted on mental health following the publication of their "new" mental health policy.

The Conservative plan contains many individual items that started life in the Scottish Liberal Democrat manifesto last spring. 

But nobody can trust the Conservatives on mental health. 

After they came to power in the UK with a majority in 2015 they abandoned many of the new mental health initiatives they had promised. They scrapped the scale of the promised investment in children’s mental health care. And they failed to implement the flagship new access standards in mental health which came into force in April.
