Early day motion 28.

Lifeworks and Community Mental Health.

That this House notes with concern the proposed closure of the Lifeworks service in Cambridge, which helps people with borderline personality disorder, and that the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Foundation Trust (CPFT) failed to adequately consult on the closure;

further notes that mental health services across the country have been underfunded for many years, especially in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough; expresses concern that the savings from reducing community mental health care lead to substantial extra costs for other services, including accident and emergency, GPs and the police, which are not properly accounted for;

highlights that there continues to be a high level of stigma associated with mental health conditions; calls on the Government and NHS England to provide more funding for mental health services, support parity of esteem,

and implement equal tariff deflators for mental and physical health care; and further calls on the CPFT to listen to the response to their new consultation and restore the Lifeworks service.
