A bumper collection of articles from academics at The University of Manchester examining the intricacies of poor mental health and offering policy suggestions to ease the plight of sufferers has received cross-party praise from politicians in both Houses of Parliament.

Published by Policy@Manchester, Open Minds draws together 10 evidence-based pieces which explore distinct aspects of mental illness, including how it affects the young, veterans, ex-prisoners, and members of the LGBT+ community. It also places a valuable spotlight on remedies for those in need of help.

Conservative MP Dean Russell, who chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Mental Health, was impressed by the publication. He said: “Tackling the stigma around mental health has been a priority in my role as a Member of Parliament. Open Minds brings together a wealth of expertise and insight, giving policymakers valuable tools to understand further the challenges of poor mental health. I look forward to reading further publications and receiving briefings on their detailed work supporting mental health.”

This article highlights the significance of bipartisan recognition for research and discussions centered around mental health issues. The acknowledgment emphasizes the universal importance of addressing mental health challenges and the need for collaborative efforts to create meaningful change.
