Over the last few months, over 7,000 of you signed our petition calling on the UK Government to provide urgent mental health support this Winter.
Following our campaigning the UK Government has now announced a Mental Health Support Plan for Covid-19. And it includes many of the things we campaigned for:
Whilst not perfect, the commitments in the plan mean that more help will be in place for people with mental health problems over the coming months, and it wouldn’t have happened without thousands of us speaking up and calling for action. Thank you.
The past year has shown that a more ambitious plan for supporting the mental health of the country is needed. There is a bigger challenge ahead if we want to avoid the long term economic and social scarring on our society and the huge impact this will have our mental health. We'll be campaigning to ensure mental health is at the heart of recovery plans from coronavirus.
You can help too. Campaign with us.
Our coronavirus information hub provides advice on how to support your mental wellbeing during this period, including accessing services, going to work and mask anxiety.
Coronavirus will have an impact on our mental health into the future. We’ve developed a checklist for what the UK government needs to prioritise now and beyond to make sure everyone gets support.
