Thousands left to cope alone after leaving mental health hospital

Figures released by Mind show that one in ten people discharged from mental health hospital after being admitted in crisis are not getting follow-up within a week of leaving – which is at least 11,000 people every year.

 Some of these people are at risk of self-harm including suicide, Mind says.
