Please sign our GP mental health training petition!

New research from Mind highlights how little training GPs and practice nurses are being offered in mental health. In England only 46% of GPs undertook a training placement in a mental health setting and 42% of practice nurses have no mental health training at all. This despite the fact that one third of GP appointments are mental health related. 

Please sign our petition to Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, calling on all GPs and practice nurses to receive sufficient and ongoing mental health training. You can sign the petition here:
