Has the penny finally dropped? Or is this just more madwash? The Mental Health Taskforce report

Today, the report of the independent mental health taskforce, led by Paul Farmer of Mind, was launched. It contains a good summary of the crushing problems faces by people with mental health problems and those in the NHS who try to help us; and there’s been a government commitment to spend ‘£1 billion a year by 2020/21’ (though where the money is coming from, how much of it is new and when and on what it will be spend has so far proven impossible to pin down). Throughout the day, I’ll be uploading links to pieces I spot analysing the report then add my own commentary.
