THOUSANDS FACE LONG WAITS FOR MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT IN LIVERPOOL


Thousands of people waited more than three months for a second mental health treatment in Liverpool last year, figures show.


The findings come as a leading staff body for the profession says it is "unacceptable" so many are suffering delays for vital treatment across England.


The NHS' talking therapy service treats patients for common mental health problems like stress, anxiety and depression.


In the year to November 2022, around 7,645 patients received a second treatment in the former NHS Liverpool CCG area – but 2,295 (30%) had to wait more than 90 days from their first one.
