Theo Clarke, MP for Stafford said:
“Since founding the Stafford Mental Health Network in 2020, it has grown from strength to strength, and I was pleased last year to secure the Prime Minister’s backing for the Stafford Mental Health Network. From hosting mental health roundtables with members of the Network it was clear to me that it would be helpful for Stafford residents to have clearer information about the support available in Stafford.
“I am delighted to be launching the Stafford Mental Health Covenant at Stafford’s St George’s Hospital today. Thank you to all the members of the Stafford Mental Health Network who have helped develop the Stafford Mental Health Covenant and all the local organisations which have already signed up to the Covenant.”
Neil Carr, Chief Executive MPFT said:
“Today is a momentous day. I am delighted that so many diverse organisations have come together and are committed to challenging the stigma around mental health. Talking openly about mental health is one of the best ways of ensuring people get the help they need, when they need it. I would encourage both individuals and organisations to show your support and sign the network’s covenant.”
