Join with us in calling for mental health to be funded in line with physical health and for a guarantee that the Mental Health Strategy will be fully funded and implemented.
For too long, the mental health of Northern Ireland has been underfunded and undervalued. As a neglected ‘Cinderella service’, it has been in the shadows and overlooked for too long.
Action Mental Health has long campaigned for a mental health strategy for Northern Ireland and warmly welcomed Minister Swann’s announcement of its launch earlier this year and the appointment of a Mental Health Champion. It is imperative that we now see urgent work across Government to secure the significant investment required to deliver the actions outlined in the strategy. We urgently need to see parity for mental health. Be part of our Go Purple for Parity campaign this year.
Join us by using our Social Media Calendar and Graphics Pack (available to download below) to share the campaign messages or by creating your own content using the hashtags #ParityForMentalHealth #WorldMentalHealthDay #GoPurpleForParity
All the instructions are in the pack – we have made taking part as easy as we can! On the run up to #WorldMentalHealthDay (10 October) we’ve prepared 1 tweet/post per day. Use the “Click here to Tweet” links provided and then add our graphic.
Many thanks to our clients – Geraldine, Mandy, Ben & Sandra who shared their views on why it’s so important to go purple for parity.
