Political suppport for mental health plan

The Strategic Plan for Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Island will change cultural attitudes from cradle to grave.

That's the belief of Director of Mental Health in the Island, Angela Murray.

One in four of us will suffer a mental health issue of some kind during our life - with mental health issues responsible for almost 23 per cent of disease in the population.

Whilst admitting there's a long road ahead, Mrs Murray says the plan sets out a stepped care model for treatment.

She says the political support is in place.
