  • Mental health appointment applauded by charity

Reports say the menace has seen some level of decline recently, but about 4,500 people take their own lives each year in England, which makes it the leading cause of death for men under age 45, according to government research.

"As our chairman has said we would like the new minister to come and meet with some Papyrus trustees and many parent whose children's suicide may have been prevented, whether that will happen is another matter".

Matt Hancock, the health secretary, acknowledged on Wednesday that mental health services had been short of resources as he began a new initiative to put mental health on an equal footing with physical health.

THE new minister for suicide prevention has been criticised for once joking that she would "sooner jump off Beachy Head than join Ukip".

She told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "Mental health is known to deteriorate when you are left without help, and you can only imagine how things got worse with me".

While the NHS has stated that 120,000 more people are getting specialist mental health treatment in 2018 compared to three years ago, it remains a significant challenge across the United Kingdom and within the construction industry, this complex issue remains particularly prominent according to Mates in Mind.

Mrs Doyle-Price, who has been an MP since 2010, will now become the minister for mental health, inequalities and suicide prevention.

To combat what she called "the sad reality of modern life" that affects so many people, Theresa May also appointed a minister for loneliness earlier this year.

"It's these people who need to be at the heart of what we do and I welcome this opportunity to work closely with them, as well as experts, to oversee a cross-government suicide prevention plan, making their sure their views are always heard".

May also pledged £1.8m to the Samaritans, to ensure the charity can continue providing its free helpline for the next four years.

Hannah Lewis - who campaigns for improvements to mental health services having suffered from panic attacks, anxiety and suicidal thoughts as a teenager - said that it can be a year before someone who is referred for help actually begins treatment.
