With the recent election bringing in a number of new MPs into Parliament, the political landscape has dramatically changed. We will be welcoming new and returning MPs with our briefing, ‘Press play on mental health: Making the changes your constituents want to see’ (Welsh version here) which will introduce them to our main policy areas. In this document we set out our priorities for change in the coming years, as well as the actions that MPs can take to help improve the experiences of all of us living with a mental health problem.
Mental health is one of the biggest domestic issues facing the new UK Government and Parliament. More people than ever are speaking out and demanding change, and as a nation our expectations for better mental health are higher than ever. It is vital that the new UK Government and Parliament put mental health at the very heart of its agenda and press play on mental health.
