Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Business Secretary Vince Cable visited Richmond Borough Mind’s drama project at Richmond Adult Community College (RACC) on 21 April and spoke to one of our service users about how the project has supported her. They also visited a ceramic class where a student explained how joining the class has helped with her depression.
The pair visited RACC to see first-hand how new funding benefits adult learners with mental health problems. The Community Learning mental health funding, administered by the Skills Funding Agency, has committed £20m in the next two years to help up to 80,000 learners as part of their recovery.
Mr Clegg said: "I was keen to visit because Vince has a long standing commitment to making sure people with mental health problems have access to wonderful education facilities like this. The most impressive thing was a woman who has long standing mental health issues and she has been working with Mind and they said coming here has done more to boost her confidence than anything that has helped her in the past."
