SANE comment on the 34th anniversary of The Forgotten Illness
Added: 20th Dec 2019

Please find below comment from Marjorie Wallace, chief executive of the mental health charity SANE, on the anniversary of The Forgotten Illness.

"34 years ago I exposed the suffering and despair of people living with schizophrenia on the fringes of society."

"Little has changed and thousands still face neglect and under-treatment like David, who took his own life after being repeatedly failed by mental health services in the 1980s."

"Until we ensure there are sufficient local beds and address the desperate shortage of experienced, qualified nurses and doctors, people will continue to suffer in silence."
