16 May, MPs are holding a special debate on mental health

* We've just heard that this Thursday, 16 May, MPs are holding a special debate on mental health in the House of Commons, and this is your chance to tell the Government what matters to you right now.
Many MPs have no understanding of mental health problems. We need you to email your MP and share your experience or point them to our work so they can speak about mental health on your behalf at the debate - visit http://is.gd/n2OmXu
You could tell your MP about your own experience, or if you prefer you could simply point your MP to PTSD Resolution.
This is our message:
" The Government should make wider access available to Veterans, Reservists and their families with mental health or well being problems by supporting service charities in addition to Combat Stress - such as PTSD Resolution, which can demonstrate a track record of providing immediate, local, brief, private, treatment at a fraction of the cost and at 80% effectiveness."
You can watch the debate live on the BBC Parliament Channel or on the Parliament website from about 11.30am on Thursday.
Please Share or Like this message to pass it on to supporters of battle to beat military PTSD
