Treatment Of Mental Health Conditions

EDM number 1638 in 2001-02, proposed by John Horam on 16/07/2002.

That this House recognises the importance of multidisciplinary treatment for people with mental health conditions; notes the strength of evidence supporting the use of physiotherapy for the treatment of mental health conditions, relieving symptons and improving quality of life; notes that standards within the National Service Framework for Mental Health aim to address social exclusion, access, reducing risk, mental health promotion and prevention of suicides; further notes the important role which specialist mental health physiotherapists have to further these standards; is alarmed that some NHS trusts are planning to disband or reduce their specialist mental health physiotherapy teams to the detriment of vulnerable patients; further notes that as a result many patients will no longer be guaranteed specialist physiotherapy treatment; calls on the Government to review the National Service Framework for Mental Health in close consultation with relevant health professionals; and further calls on the Government to produce national guidance to NHS trusts, strategic health authorities and primary care trusts outlining their commitment to mental health physiotherapy services.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
