Minister of State for Mental Health, Suicide Prevention and Patient Safety

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Minister of State for Mental Health, Suicide Prevention and Patient Safety (also known as Mental Health Minister) is a mid-level position in the Department of Health and Social Care in the British government. It is currently held by Nadine Dorries MP who took the office on 27 July 2019.[1]

The minister is responsible for mental health services and suicide prevention. The minister is shadowed by the Shadow Secretary of State for Mental Health.

History

On World Mental Health Day 2018, Prime Minister Theresa May appointed Jackie Doyle-Price as the UK's first suicide prevention minister. This occurred while the UK government hosted the first ever global mental health summit.[2]

In July 2020, Backbench MP and former nurse Nadine Dorries was appointed as mental health minister by the incoming Johnson ministry.[3] In March 2020, the Department of Health revealed that Dorries had tested positive for COVID-19.[4] She has since recovered. As minister, Dorries has been in charge of mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom.

In October 2020, the minister addressed mental health concerns around the suicide risks of women with Anorexia.[5]

In January 2021, the minister told Parliament the government's response to the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review.[6]

In February 2021, the minister committed to an increase in government spending on mental health as a result of the lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic.[7]
