Fighting Back : Tories Failing Mental Health - More Petitions to Sign

It wasn't so long back that Cameron, placed on the spot at long last, had to acknowledge that not enough was being down regarding mental health in the country. He claimed the Tories had ploughed millions into mental health services for young people. 

But it's too little too late for Natasha Wise, the 22-year old daughter of Manchester music promoter and co-founder of Factory Records Alan Wise, who committed suicide by jumping from Whalley Bridge in the early hours of Tuesday morning. She had been waiting 18 months for a counselling appointment.


You can read the full story here, it is utterly heartbreaking that this young lady received no help. The system, poorly funded by this government, let her down.


Wise, pictured here with promoter Roger Eagle, is famed for bringing Nico (also pictured) to Manchester in the 1980s. Hopefully, the powers that be will listen to Wise and realise that things cannout go on like this and we cannot just accept the flannel from the Tories as they continue to impose cuts that impact upon the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in our society.

Please sign the following petitions. Let's force this government's hand for Natasha's sake and to help others so they do not suffer the same fate, before it's too late.

Here, here, here and here - these are just the tip of the iceberg on change.org, there are many more calling for the same thing.
