Rhun ap Iorwerth (Ynys
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:
a) continue to tackle prejudice and to seek powers over employment law so that protections for people with mental health problems at work can be strengthened; and
b) ensure that all public services examine ways in which their own practices can be improved to contribute towards better mental health.
