Dear MP,

Will you stop deaths in our mental health services?

Too many mental health patients die after being held down using extreme force. Since 1990, there have been over 5,600 deaths in custody, and half of those victims suffered mental ill health.

As my MP, you’re able to vote to stop this happening. On Friday 3 November, the first bill on the order paper is the Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill. The campaign behind it is named Seni’s Law, after 23 year old Seni Lewis who died after being restrained by 11 police officers in a mental health unit.

The campaign has the support of mental health charities and campaigners. It will end the disproportionate use of force and speed up justice when things go wrong.

Will you be in Parliament to vote for Seni’s Law on 3 November? You can find out more at http://www.Senis-Law.com

Thank you.
