A thank you to all the mental health workers

As we draw to the end of #MentalHealthAwareness week, I want to thank all the mental health workers who work tirelessly to support people in our communities who struggle with their mental health.

I spoke to someone recently who lives on my estate in Ettingshall who came from Zimbabwe and works as a mental health community nurse in the city.This week she told of her joy (and mine), that after pressure from the Labour Party, Boris Johnson rightly U-turned on the surcharge for foreign National Health Service (NHS) and care workers.

She told me, “They can’t clap for us on a Thursday and make us feel unwanted every other day”.

This was the right decision.

Thank you to Cilla and other mental health workers like her still working hard to support those struggling across the country.
