At last the government have seen sense and are finding a better way to support people with mental health issues.
Although, as I am sure you are aware, I am a great believer in psychotherapy and counselling, apart from CBT, which research has shown, http://www.ijtar.org can be the most effective route for recovery from mental health problems, there is no benefit whatsoever in ‘forcing’ people who are not yet ready to take that important step.
Engaging in psychotherapy or counselling, is a huge commitment for both the client and the therapist and the timing of this has to be right for the individual. To remove further, the financial help, based on people’s right to choose this important commitment, lives them more vulnerable and will delay their recovery further.
So, I am really pleased to see; http://www.locumtoday.co.uk/article.php?s=2016-03-07-job-seekers-with-mental-ill-health-will-not-be-forced-into-therapy&utm_source=Mind+Locum+Today&utm_campaign=76764c7a77-A_B_Test_12_4_2016&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_989a53f888-76764c7a77-111695937#.VuftoseCKJV
…a real step forward and hope for people with mental health problems.
