WHO COULD HAVE GUESSED THAT STRESSING OUT A GROUP OF MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE, MAKING THEM JUMP THROUGH A LOAD OF HOOPS TO GET THE BASIC MINIMUM OF SUPPORT, AND THREATEN TO STOP THEIR BENEFITS AND THEREFORE STARVE THEM – IS BAD FOR THEIR MENTAL HEALTH?!

“According to Mind, 83% of people they surveyed said using the programme and the government’s job centre services had made their mental health worse.

Three quarters of those polled said they felt less able to work as a result of being on these schemes, the charity said.

At the same time, the schemes were ineffective for people with mental health problems, as only 5% of people had been helped into work, campaigners claimed.”
