In recent years, there have been major policy changes at a national level with plans agreed to help more people to access treatment and support. The work of campaigns like ‘Time to Change’, ‘Heads Together’, and the voices of many thousands of people with lived experience of mental health problems have helped change attitudes for the better and tackle the stigma surrounding mental health.
This manifesto sets out four specific areas where significant improvement is still needed:
- Ensure fair funding for mental health services.
- Give children a good start in life.
- Improving health services for people with mental health.
- Better lives for people with mental health problems.
