Answer for Mental Health Pledge

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As the chair of the London Health Board, I have agreed to develop a vision and plan to improve the mental health of all Londoners. This will consider how best to target the groups at highest risk and will consider approaches tailored to these groups. A vision and plan must be shared and owned by a wide range of stakeholders and communities. We are hearing from a diverse range of perspectives to ensure that this happens. The London Health Board will meet in December to discuss progress with this work.
