Stop the 75p insult on mental health prevention for Cumbria's kids

Huge Government cuts to the public health budget have left Cumbria only being able to spend £75,000 on Tier 1 preventative health measures for young people which works out at just 75p per head.

Back in 2015, the coalition Government made a spending promise of £25m per year for Cumbria's public health budget, but the Conservative Government broke this promise and now allocates £7m less than originally promised for the county.

I/we the undersigned call on the Government to end the 75p insult and give Cumbria the money it needs to help keep our young people mentally healthy and support those who are in the early stages of experiencing mental health problems.
