What are we asking for?
This petition is asking for the Prime Minister to appoint a ‘Secretary of State for Mental Health’.
Why does this matter?
The UK is burdened with a mental health crisis. At present, the ‘mental health’ portfolio has been bolted onto the job of ‘Secretary of State for Health’.
Under these conditions, mental health cannot receive proper government attention.
If the PM can create TWO new departments for Brexit (International Trade and DfExEU), then appointing a Secretary of State for Mental Health is not only possible, but desirable.
Appointing a Sec of State for Mental Health would give political parity between mental and physical health.
What can you do?
