Benefit cuts bring mental health problems, need lottery help

Wed, 26/02/2014 - 14:03 -- nick

The government's benefit cuts are so damaging to the wellbeing of claimants that the national lottery is funding support for those who suffer mental health problems as a result.

The Big Lottery Fund will support Oxfordshire MIND to provide its Benefits for Better Mental Health (BBMH) project, which has been helping people access benefits since 2008.

The £336,000 grant has been given to help the organisation deal with a big increase in workload since the coalition started its war on benefit claimants.
