Chancellor’s Autumn Budget 2018

We need your help.

The government is drawing up its new budget, which gives us a golden opportunity to call for more funding for psychotherapy.

If you’re able to help, please write to your MP and ask them to back UKCP’s calls to increase investment in psychotherapy and ringfence the mental health budget.

 Children, adults and families are all struggling to access high quality therapy services they need, and the government needs to act.

The government has said repeatedly that it’s investing £1bn extra in mental health services per year, but numerous reports are showing that money isn’t reaching the frontline.

We urge you to write to your MP, using our template letter, which you are free to modify as you wish. All you need to do is put in your postcode to find your MP. Once you have done that, enter your details, press send, and your message will go to your local MP.

The more people write to their MPs, the greater the chance of affecting real transformation in mental health services.

Make it clear that their answers are important to you as a resident and will affect your future votes.

With your help, we can make the government see how badly people need more access to better quality therapies.
