Call for evidence on new 10-year mental health plan

Call for evidence on new 10-year mental health plan image

A call for evidence to inform a new 10-year mental health plan has been launched today by the Government.

The public, people with lived experience of mental ill-health and health and care professionals have been asked to share their views on how support and services should adapt for the future. This will help shape the plan and refresh the National Suicide Prevention Plan.

It hopes to find out how local services can work together to prevent those at risk from falling into mental ill-health through earlier, targeted help.

It will also explore how initiatives such as green social prescribing and online harms can support better mental health.

Claire Murdoch, NHS England's national mental health director, said: 'The pandemic has naturally taken a toll on the nation’s mental health, so there is no better time for everyone to have their say on how we as a society can improve people’s mental wellbeing over the next decade.

'Improving people’s mental wellbeing requires action from all parts of our society, so it is vital that as many people as possible from all walks of life respond to this call for evidence.'

The call for evidence runs until 5 July.
