Motion: Mental Health and Wellbeing after COVID-19
That this Assembly recognises the importance of prioritising mental health and wellbeing as part of the COVID-19 recovery; notes that the long-term impact of the pandemic on working practices, everyday social interaction and hospital or care home visiting will present new and substantive challenges to individual mental wellbeing, especially among the most vulnerable; stresses, therefore, the need for refreshed and reformed mental health and wellbeing service provision that is fit for purpose; further notes, to this end, the transformative role played by community and voluntary providers whose services are subject to increasing demand; and calls on the Minister of Health to outline plans to tackle COVID-19-related mental illness moving forward.
