CALLS are being made to ensure there are enough services to support people with mental health problems.

Portsmouth South MP Stephen Morgan has called for more to be done in the city as data shows services are in more demand.

He said: ‘I want the people of Portsmouth to be able to get the best possible mental health treatment when they need it, and where they need it.

‘While I welcome initiatives by agencies to provide a new hub to support provision in the city, I call on the government to do more and to fund our mental health trusts.’
