In the context of the 2011 elections for the National Assembly for Wales, this briefing outlines the importance of anti-discrimination and anti-stigma campaigns. Wales is currently the only country in Great Britain without a national campaign raising awareness of mental health issues and challenging discrimination. In this briefing Mind Cymru calls on all political parties and the next Welsh Assembly Government to deliver at local and national levels the anti-discrimination campaign originally outlined in the National Service Frameworks for Mental Health in 2002 and 2005. The briefing outlines key facts regarding the discrimination of people with mental health, proposes key actions and draws upon successful campaigns in other parts of Britain.
