'Jeremy Corbyn ran rings round Theresa May' - Prime Minister criticised for response to mental heath at PMQs

May responded by claiming more money is being allocated to mental health services

Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Jeremy Corbyn has been praised for raising mental health issues at PMQs today (March 28), while Theresa May has been criticised over her response.

The Labour leader asked why there are now 5,000 fewer mental health services than there were in 2010, The Guardian reported.

May responded by claiming more money is being allocated to mental health services and has been pleased to start a mental health training initiative in schools.

Corbyn claimed spending on mental health dropped between 2010 and 2015 but the Prime Minister pointed to funding for young people's mental health services going up.

She eventually moved on to links between social media use and mental health and more NHS funding.

Many have claimed May's response was not good enough and Corbyn was able to "run rings around her."

Some have blamed problems in mental health services on cuts brought in by the Conservatives, while others have accused the Prime Minister of lying and looking uncomfortable.
