Have you ever tried to get legal advice? We want to know about your experience.
In April 2013, the Government made big changes to legal aid, tightening the financial restrictions on who can receive it and removing it from a range of legal problems including:
- Employment (except for discrimination)
- Clinical negligence (poor or incorrect healthcare)
- Private family law
Now, almost a year on, a Government committee wants to know what effects these changes have had. We want to tell them what they have meant for people with mental health problems.
To make our response to the Government as strong as possible, we want to hear from people who have mental health problems, their friends, carers, advocates and families and the effects of the changes.
If this is an issue that has affected you and you would like to tell us about your experience, please fill in our survey below.
