SIR - It’s okay showing soaps on TV highlighting mental health illnesses.

However, it’s not going to change the funding it’s all just talk.

The NHS is not in control of mental health.

I have suffered from the age of 13 and am now 54.

I am also campaigning to get the mental illness stigma lifted.

Mental illness is a silent killer.

I moved from Leeds Trust to Bradford and was supposedly transferred overnight.

No so. Seven weeks down the line I had to take an overdose to get back in the system.

Yes I survived, and thank goodness I did.

Others are not as lucky!
