Since its inception, MCP has been working on promoting and safeguarding the psychology profession whilst advocating for the service users that we meet in our daily working lives. Hence, on becoming aware that the Mental Health Strategy 2020-2030 was being created, we immediately made contact, to be involved, as much as possible in this process.
We therefore emailed our members to see who would be interested, on a voluntary basis, to help contribute in co-creating this document. It was the above authors who showed interest, and after several meetings we eventually drew up this document.
First of all we would like to acknowledge the work being put towards the creation of the public consultation document. In the feedback provided below it is our intention to build on the proposals in this document, by pointing out areas which appear to lack sufficient attention.
