Obviously the standards are important but anything which delays improvement on the availability and quality of care to those suffering the effects of poor mental health is to be deplored - I will try and find out more ahead of any announcements.It's great that some high profile figures like Ruby Wax are looking to help remove some of the stigmas around mental conditions - let's be considerate of people suffering in 2014
