At last night’s full council meeting we approved the creation of a new Mental Health Working Group. The group will be tasked with improving the way sufferers of poor mental health access council services.
I’m pleased to announce that I was elected Chair of the working group. My passion for improving mental health stems from my childhood, after nearly losing my mum to anorexia. I also suffer from anxiety, so I have first hand experience of what it’s like to suffer from an ‘invisible illness’.
I hope that by working across party lines, we can improve the situation of thousands of lives across the borough and make life a little bit easier for sufferers of poor mental health.
