Mental Health and Wellbeing Plan: discussion paper and call for evidence


The government is calling for evidence to inform a new 10-year Mental Health Plan.


We all have mental health, however there are lots of progress that needs to be made and we all have a part to play in changing things for the better.


Those with lived experience are invited to share views on how they can support and provide services that can be adapted for the future.


Our Director, Alfred Oyekoya shares his thoughts:


“We welcome the plans to drive equality for mental health by the government with cautious optimism and encourage the government to ACT. There has been lots of rhetoric and consultations to address the same issue over the years. What we need the most is ACTION!


The government should address the institutional and structural discrimination within the context of the reform of the Mental Health Act (MHA).

We also encourage everyone to respond to this call, using their own lived experiences to show what needs to improve or change. So together we can collectively hold the government to account.”
