Mental health charity blames soaring numbers on economic slump
Mental health charity Mind says the number of people using its services has rocketed by more than 5,000 in just three years.
Senior figures are putting the hike down to money and employment worries brought on by the economic slowdown and subsequent recession.
And they say in the last year-and-a-half they have been seeing a wider spectrum of society, including those in professional jobs.
The charity said numbers accessing its services and support groups jumped from 1,401 in 2009/10 to 6,770 in 2011/12.
