All council motions articles
Tuesday, 2nd December, 2014

We’d like to highlight some useful motions and rebuttals on mental health. ALDC members can download the following items from the File Library:

LGA Lib Dem Group model motion on mental health

Sutton Lib Dem Group March 2014 motion on mental health

November 2014 – Labour Rebuttal Materials (mental health)
UPDATE – Lib Dem Day of Action: Saturday 6th December

There is a national day of action to promote the party’s recent work on mental health issues, with events planned to take place on Saturday. LDHQ’s full message on these evets, with campaign pack download link, is here:

On Saturday the party is holding a national Day of Action on Mental Health. Can you help?

We want to raise awareness of our plans for mental healthcare. We’re going to increase spending and introduce guaranteed waiting times for talking therapies. No other party is talking about mental healthcare like we are. That’s despite nearly 1 in 4 of us suffering from mental health issues in our lives.

We’ve put together an action pack for you to use in England. You’ll find a leaflet, a petition sheet, social media content and other materials.

Download the pack

(You’ll need access to the campaigner’s Google Drive – contact us if you don’t have access)

If you haven’t yet started to plan your street stall you can do so here:

If you have any questions about the day of action – whether it’s your first action day or your tenth – don’t hesitate to get in touch with me at nationalcampaigns@libdems.org.uk.

Many thanks,

Steve
