MPs talk of mental health issues

15th June 2012

Two MPs have talked openly about their mental health problems in an effort to break the taboo around the issue.

Conservative Charles Walker, the MP for Broxbourne, has described how he had lived with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for more than 30 years while Labour’s Kevan Jones, who is the MP for Durham North, discussed his battle with depression. The MPs have been praised by mental health charities for their decision to speak out about their own mental health issues.
