Christmas: a great time to bury bad news about mental health

From the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/dec/26/child-mental-health-accident-and-emergency-nhs

It seems that the government released some worrying figures over the dire state of childrens’ mental health services over the Christmas break.

While everybody was tucking into their turkey and watching Doctor Who, the figures show that “numbers arriving at A&E departments with psychiatric conditions has risen to nearly 20,000 a year –more than double the number four years ago”.
