Royal Pharmaceutical Society pledge to Equally Well UK:
Mental health has been a key focus for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society in 2017 as we examine how pharmacy, as the third largest health profession, can support people with mental health problems. Working with the pharmacy profession, patient groups and other health professional bodies, our report published in June made a number of recommendations about how pharmacists can be better utilised as part of the multidisciplinary team to improve the care of people with mental health problems. We will continue working with our members and others across health and care to take forward this important agenda.
