Opposition Day Debate on Mental Health

Yesterday I spoke during the Opposition Day debate on mental health.

The more that mental health is discussed, the clearer it becomes that it is something that affects people in huge numbers from all walks of life, all backgrounds and all ages.

I supported the Labour motion stating that mental health should be treated with the same priority as physical health and that not enough progress has been made in translating parity of esteem between mental and physical health into practice.
