Issue details

Gateshead Council becoming a signatory to the Public Health England Prevention Concordat for Better Mental Health

COVID-19 has highlighted pre-existing inequalities and, in some cases, widened them. Taking a prevention-focused approach to improving the public’s mental health has been shown to make a valuable contribution to achieving a fairer and more equitable society, dovetailing with the aims of the Councils Thrive strategy. The Concordat will support an increased focus on the prevention of mental health problems and the promotion of good mental health across Gateshead. Cabinet is asked to support Gateshead’s Application for the Prevention Care Concordat through Public Health England.
