As the World Health Organisation says, there is no health without mental health. Mental health is inextricable from a huge range of social issues - both in terms of its causes and broader social implications.
But many of the policies of our current Government actively make the nation’s mental health worse.
From cutting Universal Credit to levying a National Insurance rise, the Government is squeezing ordinary Britons at a time when living costs are rising exponentially. This ultimately will push more Britons into poverty and exacerbate mental ill-health.
At the same time British people are facing a hard winter of soaring energy prices, shortages in the shops, shortages at the petrol pumps and a government whose response to these crises is to stubbornly, ideologically, keep our borders closed to overseas workers.
So, this World Mental Health Day, we’re asking you to spare a couple of moments and sign our petition, taking a stand and letting the Government know that its failure to tackle food insecurity and poverty is a stain on society.
