Priory Group MH Statistics

I have picked up the following from the pages of the Guardian newspaper

'The Priory Health Group has developed a reputation as the rehab clinic frequented by actors and popstars seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction.

But the company claims that more than 2.9 million people in the UK are diagnosed as having depression at any one time, and as many as one in three people will be affected by depression at some point in their lives. The clinics specialise in treating disorders including anorexia, anxiety, behavioural difficulties and phobias, as well as offering advice for "depression sufferers at Christmas" and organising courses on issues such as "psychosexual emergencies". '

The UK Government figure is one in five people may suffer from depression yet this go-ahead private company thinks and is basing its business plan on a figure of one in three is a more realistic figure !
