Nick Clegg has launched a strong attack on how the NHS treats mental health patients, saying it is "just plain wrong" to treat the illness as the "poor cousin" of physical health.

Speaking to the BBC ahead of the unveiling of the government's mental health strategy, Mr Clegg said the issue still faces "too much prejudice, too much discrimination."
