EASTBOURNE resident Dean Martin – a carer – has written this letter to Caroline Ansell MP:

“Now the government is cutting benefits, this adds more stress to families – in fact to everyone.

When will the mental torture stop?

Every day you see problems about mental health for everyone including children. What about those people who all ready had mental health issues even before covid?

Where is the support for everyone who suffers..

They talk about more funding but who is going to pay? The government no! It will be everyone..

You see on the news about people sadly dying not only from covid but mental health – when will it stop?

The government should put themselves in the shoes of the suffering and find out what it’s really like to suffer”
