There is also an easy read version available: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/mental-health-and-wellbeing-plan-call-for-evidence-easy-read
The online consultation will run until 11.45pm on 7th July 2022 at: https://consultations.dhsc.gov.uk/623ac367ea9bcd4c024d6df9
The DHSC are particularly keen to hear from:
- People who have experienced mental ill health themselves
- People who have cared for, or supported, others with mental ill health
- People with views on how we can:
o better support people to stay in good mental health,
o best prevent the onset of mental ill health and,
o promote positive mental wellbeing.
