“Is it acceptable that mental health services are on their knees?” 
Jeremy Corbyn asked David Cameron this question at Prime Minister’s Questions in September. 
We know that however bad it is in the rest of the country, it’s even worse in Manchester.
Manchester has high rates of depression, anxiety and severe mental illness—such as psychosis or bipolar disorder.  At least 1 in 4 people has a mental health problem at some time.  That’s over 110,000 people.
