Mental Health Champion

Mental Health Champion
That this Assembly notes that more than one in four of the population are affected by poor mental health and wellbeing; further notes the significant social and economic implications that this is having on society; expresses deep concern that per capita we have one of the worst records of poor mental health and wellbeing in the world; accepts that our shocking rates have been impacted directly by 30 years of violence and that the issue is now inter-generational; and calls on the Minister of Health to appoint a Mental Health Champion, to be funded from charitable and philanthropic contributions, to protect and promote the interests of those suffering poor mental health and wellbeing.
