Sajid Javid – 2022 Comments on Mental Health and the Black Community

The comments made by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 12 May 2022.

It was great to visit the ACCI today and see the fantastic work they’re doing to support the local community’s mental health.

I’m continuing to level up health across the country –this includes mental health and ensuring it is on an equal footing to physical health.

In order to make sure our 10 year mental health plan works for all, it’s important that the Black community share their views and experiences on how we can improve the support and services available. Your voices will shape our plan to promote positive mental wellbeing across the nation.
