Suicides increase due to budget cuts, support group claims

The founder of a mental health support group claims that vulnerable people are killing themselves due to cuts in public services.

Kelly Boylin, from Flint, says people are waiting too long for support and there is a gap between services for children and adults.

She set up Kim's Voice in memory of her sister, who killed herself four years ago while waiting for treatment.

A spokesman for the Welsh government said early intervention is key in providing metal health treatment, and steps had been taken to improve this.

Ms Boylin spoke to Rhian Price of BBC Radio Cymru.
