The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Parliament to debate mental health

Embargoed until 12 June 2012

MPs will hold a debate in the House of Commons on Thursday 14 June 2012 to discuss a variety of issues around the topic of mental health.


The Royal College of Psychiatrists welcomes this debate as while mental health does get discussed in Parliament, this is the first time for many years that MPs will be able to consider the subject in such detail in the main chamber of the House of Commons.


Working jointly with the mental health charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, the College has produced a briefing for MPs outlining some of our key areas of concern, which include:


  • Health and social care
  • Welfare reform
  • Employment and equality
  • Stigma and discrimination
