Theresa May landmark speech on mental health
Meadows Communications have been working on mental health for over 15 years. In that time we have been delighted by the way in which mental health has moved out of the shadows. Few of us would have imagined that in less than a generation we would go from having ‘Bonkers Bruno’ headlines in the Sun and very little acknowledgement or investment from Government for the issue, to having the Prime Minister announce she wants to see a ‘new approach’ to mental heath with ‘transformed’ attitudes towards people with mental health problems by reducing the stigma that surrounds mental illness. Hence we celebrate hearing this statement of intent from Government. We hope that the profile now being given to the scale of the problem is backed up with significant and ring-fenced resources and local leadership and accountability for action in order to deliver real change to the lives of people with mental health problems.
