We're delighted to feature a guest post by Eva Musby, author of Anorexia and other Eating Disorders: how to help your child eat well and be well, about our campaign to introduce waiting times standards in Scotland to match those laid out for young people in England.
On 3rd March, during Eating Disorders Awareness Week, we ran our first ever Campaigner Day. Caroline and Anna attended because they wanted to deepen their understanding of how to use their voices to make change.
Last week the government published a ‘green paper’ about improving mental health support for children and young people in England.
We found that on average, people were waiting for three-and-a-half years between their symptoms first emerging and treatment starting.
We’re pleased to support campaigner Natasha Devon in pushing for responsible reporting on mental illness through a new mental health Charter.
For 2017, the focus of World Mental Health Day is mental health in the workplace.
