Spending on Mental Health Research in the UK / McPin Foundatioin

I just read, “For every £1.00 that the Government spend on cancer research, the general public invest £2.75; for heart and circulatory problems it is £1.35. For mental health research, the figure is 0.003p”. Lord Bradley

With so little money available I am  lucky to be employed by a mental health research organisation at  http://mcpin.org/ and even luckier to be involved in some research projects NOT funded by drug manufacturers.

    The comments on the adrenal gland not producing enough cortisol fatigue etcetera I found fascinating as was the comments regarding NO genetic link and traumatic events in life triggering a BP condition not failing to also foods impact on mood…all enlighting!
    From my situation I went through 3 highly stressful situations; within 6 months ….( actually went into shock ; and had panic attacks over 3 month period ) while pre- disposed to a BP condition perhaps, because I’m a little more sensitive than the average person and more than I had acknowledged myself… ie bright sunlight, noisy environments etc etc
    So it’s great to be able to relate to some of these findings myself …perhaps not so Alien
