Chancellor’s Autumn Budget 2018

We need your help.

The government is drawing up its new budget, which gives us the 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 ringfence the mental health budget.

The government continue to espouse strong rhetoric around mental health funding but the reality is that much of the 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 further we can drive mental health funding up the government’s agenda.

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

If you would like to know more about the importance of ringfencing, our Policy and Advocacy Officer, Adam Jones, has written a blog outlining why protecting funding is now more vital than ever.
