Stand For Me Campaign

This page is also available in Welsh.

Together, we’ve achieved so much. The new Welsh Government made election promises to prioritise the mental health of people in Wales. Since winning, they have appointed a new Deputy Minister for Mental Health and Wellbeing.

Now is the time to celebrate, to congratulate, and to contemplate the next step. Because this is just the beginning. While manifesto commitments are encouraging, they have to be followed with action. And that’s where you come in.

#StandForMe

Tell Lynne Neagle to Stand For You

Whether it's for your younger self who struggled with depression, for your friend on the CAMHS waiting list or for everyone whose mental health has suffered because of coronavirus, share why this Government must stand for mental health.

Write a free, personalised, postcard to Lynne Neagle, Deputy Minister for Mental Health, and encourage others to do the same.

Let this government know what it’s really like for those of us with a mental health problem in Wales. And let them know that we will be holding them to account.

Together, we can make sure election promises equate to real change.

We need your help

With your help, we’ll make sure our government stands for you, stands for us and stands for mental health.

This Welsh Government must:

  • Make mental health a cross-cutting priority by publishing a new Mental Health Strategy and reviewing mental health legislation.
  • Address inequalities in access to mental health support, in particular people living in poverty and people who are from racialised communities.
  • Address the growing crisis in young people’s mental health by meeting the wide and varied demand for support.
  • Commit to ensuring everybody has safe and speedy access to quality care when they need it, including crisis care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Provide greater focus, planning and investment into mental health in primary care and talking therapies to ensure timely access to a range of support.
  • Tackle stigma in communities and drive improved employment practices to make workplaces more accessible and inclusive for those experiencing mental health problems.
