As the UK marks Time to Talk Day, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has told that he will ensure that there is a “specific focus” on LGBT+ mental health as part of the NHS Long Term Plan, which was unveiled in January. Hancock pledged to meet the needs of the LGBT+ community when it comes to treatment for mental health issues on the NHS. “Where there are specific needs within the LGBT community then that must be a focus,” said the health secretary. “And, as part of the implementation plan for the Long Term Plan for the NHS, which we’re working on now, and we’ll be publishing in the coming months, we’ll make sure that there’s a specific focus on the mental health needs of the LGBT community.
