๐Ÿ’† Mental Health /

ย 

We believe that Mental Health should be placed at the core of our health system.

To achieve this, Alliance will:

  • Appoint a Champion for Mental Health.

  • Place psychological therapies at the core of the mental health services agenda

  • Fully implement the Personality Disorder Strategy.

  • Facilitate the rebalancing of health spending to support mental health investments. This includes investment in particular into Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and Psychological Therapies.

  • Work to eliminate stigma and ensure dignity and respect of people with mental illness. Support the implementation and ongoing review of the Executiveโ€™s Protect Life Strategy to combat suicide. This involves a cross-departmental response and improved follow- up support for people who attempt suicide, or who have suicidal ideation, through co- ordinated crisis care and enhanced additional care.
