PEOPLE are being urged to share their views on mental health by Meriden MP Saqib Bhatti, to help shape a new 10-year plan for mental health and wellbeing for England.
The survey, launched by the Health Secretary, Sajid Javid will ask the public a range of questions on how to promote positive mental wellbeing and how to help those with mental health conditions.
People with lived experiences such as those who have experienced mental ill-health, those who have cared for someone affected by mental ill-health, those who work or volunteer in health and social care services, are invited to take part.
Saqib, who is Parliamentary Private Secretary to Mr Javid, said: “The last two years have been extremely challenging, and as we begin to recover from the pandemic we do so with a renewed focus on mental health and wellbeing.
“I urge people with first-hand experiences to come forward and help shape the new plan.”
“There are many charities in the borough that provide crucial services such as Solihull Mind and Mental Health Matters and the Cameron Grant Memorial Trust.
“I pay tribute to these charities and others for the incredible work they do.”
