Mental Health Taskforce

In March 2015, NHS England announced a new Mental Health Taskforce which will develop a five year national strategy for mental health, covering all ages. The strategy will align to the Five Year Forward View and will be informed by a wide range of lived experience and professional expertise.

The Taskforce wants to ensure that a wide range of stakeholders have the opportunity to feed in, therefore Mind and Rethink Mental Illness are running a survey, the results of which will feed into the Taskforce.

The survey is now open at www.surveymonkey.com/s/mh2020 

They would very much welcome your input into the survey.
The survey will close on 15 May 2015.

There is further information about the Mental Health Taskforce and how you can get involved available on Mind’s website.
