They help patients to overcome their ill health, or to come to terms with it, so they can lead as normal a life as possible. Severe and enduring mental health problems such as schizophrenia affect about one in 200 people each year.

Concerns about mental illness are such that the Government has given a high priority to this area, along with coronary heart disease and cancers.
