Mrs Sharpe questions why the strategy isn't already up and running given surging figures

Concerns over whether the proposed Manx Care mandate go far enough to support mental health are being raised.

MLC Kerry Sharpe spoke in Tynwald - responding to the call for a general debate by Health Minister Lawrie Hooper.

Referrals to the Isle of Man Children's and Adolescents Mental Health Service have increased by 42 percent since the beginning of the first Covid-19 lockdown.

Mrs Sharpe says she's been investigating the Island's mental health strategy and is concerned by the lack of knowledge at high level on the topic.
