AM praises council for pledging to end mental health stigma

MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has praised Monmouthshire County Council for their efforts on signing a pledge today to end the stigma of mental health.

Mr Ramsay attended the “Time to Change Wales” mental health event held at County Hall earlier today where the new pledge was signed followed by a presentation.

Speaking after the event Nick said:

“I’m delighted Monmouthshire County Council is joining many other large organisations who have signed this pledge. Congratulations to the council on being one of the first local authorities to do so.

“The more people speak up about mental health issues the sooner we will deal with the prejudice that currently exists. I hope we will see some great results from this new initiative.”
