General Election 2015

Thanks to you, all the parties talked about mental health during the 2015 General Election. Thank you so much for all your support.

Our manifesto: the six commitments

We asked whoever formed the next Government to make six commitments to improve the lives of everyone affected by mental health problem:

  1. Reduce mental health stigma and discrimination and continue to support the Time to Change campaign

  2. Mandate the NHS in England to offer talking therapies to everyone who needs them within 28 days of referral

  3. Ensure everyone gets safe, speedy and accessible crisis care whenever they need it, no matter where they turn

  4. Transform the support for people who are not working because of their mental health and create a system that really helps them to overcome the barriers they face

  5. Increase the overall NHS mental health budget by a minimum of 10 per cent in real terms over five years

  6. Implement a national strategy that helps everyone to take care of their mental wellbeing
