Mental health services were already stretched before the pandemic. But now the crisis in care has intensified – the pressures on mental health services and the people who deliver them are unprecedented and unsustainable.
Health providers simply can’t meet increased demand, with stretched resources and staff shortages the norm. Only one in eight adults with a mental health problem in the UK are currently receiving any kind of treatment.
This stark reality isn’t just impacting on patients, but healthcare staff too. As demand outstrips supply, the growing burden falls heavily on the shoulders of staff, who are 50% more likely to experience high levels of work-related stress compared with the general working population.
