BACP Mayoral Hustings: Government and media attention during the pandemic has largely focussed on acute NHS services and, to a lesser extent, social care. The massive impacts on mental health have received less attention. Now the vaccination roll-out is well underway and Covid-19 infections and deaths decrease, it is time for the ‘mental health pandemic’ – and the vital importance of counselling and psychotherapy services play – to be recognised and addressed.
Please join us at our major hustings event on building back better mental health in Greater Manchester.
We are delighted that the Greater Manchester Mayoral candidates will set out their plans to tackle mental health issues and their views on why our future mental health and wellbeing is so critical to Greater Manchester’s Covid-19 recovery.
- Rt Hon Andy Burnham (Labour) CONFIRMED
- Michael Elston (Independent) CONFIRMED
- Laura Evans (Conservative)
- Melanie Horrocks (Green)
- Simon Lepori (Liberal Democrat) CONFIRMED
- Stephen Morris (English Democrats) CONFIRMED
Each candidate will set out their party’s position on the long-term impact on the mental health of people in Greater Manchester and their ambitions to improve mental health and wellbeing.
We very much hope that you will want to attend and be represented at these important hustings on mental health.
