EVER since the day the doors slammed firmly shut at the Margaret Stanhope Centre, mental health provision has been a hot topic for people in Burton.
The closure of the inpatient psychiatric facility in 2012 sent shockwaves through the town.
Now, campaigners who have been fighting for a better service in the area are pushing for a 'Safe Space' for people to go if they fall ill.
The plans were officially announced in the Mail and received unanimous backing during a meeting on the future of mental health, held at Cafe Zen, in High Street.
Dr Matt Long, one of the organisers of the Safe Space campaign, said: "Safe Space would not cater for those under section who need to be hospitalised according to the law, but would offer short-term care for a number of days for those becoming acutely ill."
