Mental Health First Aid England are delighted to kick off 2019 by announcing that the planned Parliamentary debate on mental health first aid has been rescheduled for Thursday 17th January. Support for the ‘Where’s Your Head At?’ campaign means MPs are now being urged to answer the calls from across society to change the law and put mental and physical first aid on an equal footing in the workplace.
The debate is sponsored by a cross-party trio of MPs, Luciana Berger MP (Lab), Norman Lamb MP (Lib Dem) and Johnny Mercer MP (Con), and follows a groundswell of support for the issue from more than 200,000 members of the public, and over 50 senior leaders from across business, education and mental health.
