The UK is facing a mental health crisis and one in four people will experience mental health problems this year, according to the charity Mind. The number of people receiving medication for anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and panic attacks has also more than doubled over the last decade. But while mental health problems seem to be increasing, talking treatments like counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy can be difficult to access on the NHS. Government targets say that people with mental health problems should be able to have talking therapy within 18 weeks of referral, but in some cases, it is even longer. And the distance people have to travel for NHS therapy is increasing, according to the British Medical Association. Things are getting worse not better. Between 2014-15 and 2016-17 there was a 40% increase in patients being sent more than 30 miles for treatment. One person was even sent from Somerset to the Highlands for therapy. … [Read more...] about Walking and talking is answer to better mental health says TV’s Steve McKeown

Steve McFadden was spotted cycling to work in Southampton on a fold-up bike this weekend. The actor, who plays Phil Mitchell in soap EastEnders, 59, is currently appearing in a pantomime production of Dick Whittington in the south coast city. The star could be seen wearing a hat and a pair of gloves as he donned a blue and white jacket in a bid to protect himself from the cold January weather. Steve arrived at the theatre on an environmentally friendly electronic bike which retails at a cost of £3,000. Last year he was out and about making nightclub appearances and charging fans £2 so they could have a picture with him at the venues. Steve was camera ready for snap-happy revellers who were enjoying a few drinks on their nights out.

You might have thought that debutante balls were a thing of the past – a relic from the 1950s, when young women would be formerly "presented" in society. And in many ways they are: the last debutante ball at Buckingham Palace took place back in 1958, when 1,400 girls were presented to the Queen, marking the end of a 200-year tradition. "We had to put a stop to it" said Princess Margaret, "every tart in London was getting in." And yet, around the world today, debutante balls are still going strong. But if there's one ball in particular that's become the most exclusive and sought-after, it's Le Bal des Debutantes. Held in Paris and organised by PR extraordinaire Ophélie Renouard, the ball has now been running for 25 years. The ball - known simply as 'Le bal' - is now more popular than ever with Hollywood as well as European royalty.
