We have used a Mental Health in All Policies approach to explore how each of the manifestos might support our policy asks.

We analyse how each party’s agenda addresses mental health and wellbeing regarding: Communities, Children and Young People, Housing and Homelessness, Multi Morbidities and Work.

  • Support future generations by promoting good mental health and wellbeing from an early age and providing training and support in schools, colleges and universities.
  • Improve access to psychological therapies in Wales.
  • Reduce inequalities faced by people with mental health problems and for groups that are at higher risk of developing mental health problems.
  • Tackle stigma and discrimination, especially in the workplace and in the health service. Improve mental health funding and outcomes for people with mental health problems.
