Thinking differently about mental health and wellbeing

Elections

Manifesto

Mental health has risen up the agenda, with cross party support for new policy and legislation such as Together for Mental Health and the Mental Health (Wales) Measure. In addition, several Assembly Members have courageously spoken out about their own experiences of mental health problems, helping us to improve understanding and tackle stigma and discrimination in Wales.

However, this focus on mental health must be sustained. It is clear to us that much more needs to be done to improve early intervention and prevention, further develop high quality mental health services, address attitudes and help to create a mentally healthy Wales.

Mental health charities Gofal and the Mental Health Foundation - with the support of Bipolar UK, Diverse Cymru and Samaritans Cymru - have developed this manifesto to highlight our priorities for the next Assembly term. We hope that each of Wales’ political parties are prepared to embrace these challenges and take action to improve mental health and wellbeing.
