No Health without Mental Health=Parity of Esteem

Transition from DLA to PIP has been occurring across the country. This much publicised change has caused so much challenge and taken up so much professionals time. I had heard from many that they found themselves disadvantaged and poorer but its interesting to see more data about this.

October 2016 found those who are mentally ill are 2.4 times more likely than those with a non-psychiatric condition to lose their benefit.

How can we address this?
