Submission to DHSC Women’s Health Strategy consultation

We welcome the government’s call for evidence to inform the development of “a landmark government-led Women’s Health Strategy, to improve the health and wellbeing of women across England and place women’s voices at the centre of their care”. In this submission we focus on women’s mental health experiences and needs, which we consider should be central to any women’s health strategy. The body and the mind are indivisible, and any strategy aiming to bring about genuine change in how women’s health is regarded, supported and improved must be holistic, and take a ‘whole person’ approach to health.
