Some people with a mental health problem are having to wait up to three years to talk to a counsellor, depending on where they live.

Mental health charity Mind says three quarters of sufferers first start to get problems when they’re under 25.

Ten leading doctors groups and charities have joined the campaign to get rid of the “postcode lottery”.

They want everyone to be able to get the right sort of counselling they need within 28 days of asking.

Colin Walker says there has never been a greater demand for talking therapies, as there are so many people struggling after the economic recession.
