The Bishop for Mental Health, the Right Reverend Richard Moth, commented on the campaign:
“The campaign which is being launched today to treat mental health equally with physical health and ensure that those in need receive proper access to treatment and help is extremely important.
“I’ve become acutely aware just from our work on the Mental Health Project for the Bishops’ Conference these past few years how prevalent is the need, and how often that need goes unmet.
“On behalf of our Bishops’ Conference in England and Wales, and together with other churches and faith groups, I’m very glad to be supporting this vital cause, and I urge people to join this campaign for more resources for mental health by contacting their member of parliament.”
As well as having the responsibility nationally for mental health, Bishop Moth is the Bishop of Arundel and Brighton.
