BBC News Story - Mental health strategy tackles stigma and 'everyday pressures'

You might have seen a story on the BBC News and BBC News Online yesterday which is about the Mental Health (Wales) Measure.

The stories opening couple of lines went as follows and you can find it under the following link -

"Health Minister Lesley Griffiths has promised to "tackle stigma" over mental health and give equal access from "cradle to grave" to vulnerable groups.

The commitments are being made in the Welsh government's first strategy for a decade to improve mental health."

The Strategy the story is talking about is the Mental Health (Wales) Measure which you can read all about on this website.

In fact, the first part of the Measure has been put into place this month and in a couple of weeks we're going to launch a new Downloadable Resource explaining all aspects of Part 1 of this new legislation.

The aim is of Part 1 is to help Local Primary Mental Health Support Services come to terms with the new rules and we'll have full details about everything connected with this section of the strategy on this site from next week.
