I READ with interest Emilie Yerby’s account of how Guernsey is making excellent strides in strengthening its support for islanders’ mental health. ‘Mental health is the responsibility of all of us’. In my experience, it is the responsibility of anyone but the service set up to provide just that support. My life took a dramatic turn a couple of years ago, circumstances completely out of my control, which continue to have an enduring effect on my life. My GP kindly referred me for talking therapy with the Primary Mental Health team.
