Speaking before the Government's mental health startegy was announced, Nick Clegg expressed his thoughts on how the NHS treats mental health patients, saying it is "just plain wrong" to treat the illness as the "poor cousin" of physical health. Mr Clegg said the issue still faces "too much prejudice, too much discrimination."

The new mental health strategy, named 'Closing the Gap', focused on the stigma that surrounds mental health which makes it so difficult for many people to seek help and be treated.
