In Nottingham I was delighted to meet with Rushcliffe Young Labour. They are a newly formed group and their first campaign is about young people’s mental health. After that Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping, and I attended a roundtable discussion with representatives from Nottingham Citizens and Mencap Nottingham. Some of the things we spoke about included the transition of teenagers to adult mental health services, the importance of talking about mental health in schools, and Mencap Nottingham’s Safe Spaces campaign.
