Less than 1.5% of London’s public health budget spent on mental health
28th October 2014

According to research by Charity Mind, under one and half percent of London’s health budget is spent on mental health. 
Artist Bobby Baker, whose new display in Dalston highlights the issues and stigma surrounding mental health, talks to London Live about the problem of underfunding in this area and why it sadly isn't surprising.
Baker also explains how mental health issues are too frequently hidden behind other problems, meaning they are often unfairly forgotten.
