Jeremy welcomes Neath Port Talbot mental health pledge

I’m pleased to see that Neath Port Talbot council yesterday joined Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board and Swansea and Bridgend councils in signing the Time To Change Wales Pledge.

The Pledge includes a commitment to support employees and members of the community who suffer with mental health issues and to work to end stigma and discrimination. I am looking forward to seeing the detailed action plans being rolled out.

Thanks to Welsh Labour’s leadership, more than £600m is invested every year in mental health services, more than any other service in the NHS. The additional £16m-a-year which is being invested in mental health services, which was announced last year, together with the extra investment for mental health services announced as part of the Welsh Government’s draft budget for 2016-17, will ensure resources are available to deliver on our mental health priorities. The £16m is already helping to improve access to psychological therapies and child and adolescent mental health services and providing support to people diagnosed with dementia.

The Welsh Government has recently opened a consultation on its next delivery plan for mental health. The plan encompasses work to ensure mental wellbeing is given equal priority with physical wellbeing in the development and delivery of services, improved assessment and support for young people living with autism, delivery of eating disorder services in community settings, tackling stigma associated with mental health problems and improving services for those with dementia and their carers.
