NDM6115 Rhun ap Iorwerth (Ynys Môn):
 
 To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
 
1. Regrets that prejudice towards those who have, or have had, mental health problems continues, and the impact this can have on employment, income and well-being for those with mental health problems.

2. Believes that education about mental health should start at a young age and schools should be equipped to promote well-being amongst all pupils.

3. Calls on the Welsh Government to:

b) ensure that all public services examine ways in which their own practices can be improved to contribute towards better mental health.

 

The following amendments have been tabled:

Amendment 1 - Paul Davies (Preseli Pembrokeshire):

Delete point 3 and replace with:

Calls on the Welsh Government to:

a) end silo working in mental health delivery; and

b) work across the public sector to raise awareness of mental health issues, promoting preventative techniques, such as talking therapies and mindfulness.

 

[If amendment 1 is agreed, amendment 2 will be de-selected]

 

Amendment 2 - Jane Hutt (Vale of Glamorgan)

In sub-point 3a, delete 'and to seek powers over employment law so that protections for people with mental health problems at work can be strengthened' and replace with:
