10-year plan to improve mental health

Your views – Businesses have the opportunity to inform Government’s 10-year plan to improve mental health.  

Positively managing mental health underpins good employee engagement and benefits everyone – employees, employers and the bottom line. 

The Department for Health and Social Care have launched a call for evidence for a new 10-year plan to improve mental health inviting businesses, the public, those with lived experience of mental ill-health, and health and care professionals to share views on how support and services should adapt for the future.

Closing on 7th July, this call for evidence will inform the new DHSC 10-year mental health plan and a refreshed National Suicide Prevention Plan requiring views on what can be improved within the current service, particularly in light of the pandemic which has led to record levels of people seeking treatment.

Would more mental health training in the workplace help you to support staff, reduce absenteeism and boost productivity? 

Do you proactively support positive mental health? 

Could you share your journey – what worked well for your business and employees, what didn’t? 

DHSC would like to hear from you.
