Newark and Sherwood District Council have approved the proposal for each political party to appoint a Member Mental Health Champions
Newark and Sherwood District Council's leisure and environment committee have approved the proposal for each political party to appoint a Member Mental Health Champion.
This follows the motion at the last Full Council meeting on October 15 entitled ‘The Mental Health Challenge’, where members approved a motion to sign the Time to Change Employer Pledge, appoint a Member Champion and identify a member of staff to act as ‘lead officer’ for mental health.
The motion was brought forward by member of the council, Michael Brown, who outlined the extent to which people are affected by mental health issues.
