Adjournment Debate


MPs are debating investigations into deaths in mental health settings.

Conservative MP for Broxbourne, Charles Walker, is leading this debate on deaths in mental health settings.

An inquiry by the Equality and Human Rights Commission found that 367 adults with mental health issues died of non-natural causes while detained on psychiatric wards.

The Department of Health wants to see the implementation of a "zero suicide" ambition in the NHS following the success of a depression care programme in Detroit which resulted in no suicides for over two years.
