Inflation has been termed to be prime reason for decline in government expenditure on mental health services. The revelation of the same has been done by a national mental health survey.
The survey has revealed that spending has declined by 1% for working age adults in 2011-2012, which amounted to be £6.62 billion. The survey found that due to decline in the spending, many areas were left, which needed the financial support.
It is said that it has happened for the first time that government spending has fallen short. To give more details then assertive outreach investment has declined by 8.5% and home treatment spending has declined by 4.3%.
The British Association of Social Workers (BASW) was of the view that there are chances that decline in funds would prove costly for social workers teams. They have warned that it is a time when more investment is needed and cuts at such time can prove costly.
"The demands of working with only those in high level need put emotional pressures on social workers and also usually leads to an increase in bureaucracy as the whole", the association further affirmed. The government was of the view that they have taken decision after a lot of consideration.
