Manifesto for Better Mental Health 2017


02 / 05 / 2017

The Mental Health Network is a founding member of the Mental Health Policy Group – a coalition of six organisations working for better mental health. Colleagues from Mind, Rethink Mental Illness, Royal College of Psychiatrists, Mental Health Foundation and the Centre for Mental Health – together with the Mental Health Network – have produced the Manifesto for Better Mental Health. 

This manifesto sets out four specific areas for improvement: 

  • Ensure fair funding for mental health services
  • Give children a good start in life
  • Improving health services for people with mental health problems
  • Better lives for people with mental health problems

The policy group very much want to see all parties re-commit to the full implementation of the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health as well as a funding settlement post 2020 which will provide vital increases in investment for mental health services.
