Mental Health

It is estimated that one in four people in the UK will experience mental health problems at some point – which could affect their family life, health, relationships, future prospects and often those around them and in their community.

The Partnership has worked on a number of events around this topic.

Improving Health, Supporting Justice

In May 2010 the Partnership organised an event, in collaboration with Thames Valley Probation, to raise awareness of the issues and recommendations covered by the 2009 Report by Lord Bradley into people with mental health problems or learning difficulties in the criminal justice system.
