A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER,
Having experienced panic attacks and anxiety for much of my adult life, I wanted to set up this initiative to bring together Conservatives, charities and professionals, to explore ways to improve the lives of those suffering from mental illnesses.
According to Time to Change, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem, 9 in 10 will experience stigma and discrimination, and those with mental health problems are more likely to be victims of violence.
Progress is being made, but we must build on that and not become complacent.
My hope is that Conservatives for Mental Health will play an important part in promoting mental health policies and keeping this important issue high on the agenda.
