Mind are getting ready to head to the party conferences, where they’ll be lobbying on a variety of mental health issues, including mental health at work, the benefits system, discrimination and crisis care.
They’re asking people to vote in their online poll as to what are the issues that matter most to them. The poll is illustrated with a handy infographic to help people make up their minds.
Personally I voted for “fairer benefits” as the most important issue in mental health at the moment, though all the issues mentioned are deeply important. Arguably, given the current government’s barely-disguised contempt for the most vulnerable in society, there’s never been a time when it’s more important for people to stand up and shout about mental health issues.
