I was recently told there’s a 20 week waiting list for talking therapies in Walsall. This wait time is causing a struggle for me personally, as waiting for desperately needed help only worsens mental health conditions. Talking therapies such as CBT and DBT should be the first port of call for mental health problems, rather than medication, which can’t happen with the current wait times. It should also be used in conjunction with medication to increase the wellbeing of the person. It will increase the well-being of the whole community.
