Very glad to hear on the news, about the mental health reforms. Very hopeful this will lead to greater accessibility and more appropriate services.
Considering at least 1 in 4 people are affected by mental illness, it makes absolute sense, that it is treated as far greater a priority, than it currently is.
And it needs to be understood, that a lot of physical health issues, are caused by mental health issues.
And childhood trauma, is now known to be the leading cause of physical health issues, in adulthood. See Dr Nadine Burke’s TED talk on childhood trauma and the adult physical health consequences @ http://www.healingfromcomplextraumaandptsd.com/#!lifelong-effects-of-childhood-trauma/c7r
Any increased funding, more appropriate services, a focus on childhood trauma – will all lead to better outcomes.
I am hopeful, for these reforms.
