Brexit and mental health

In December 2017, 18 months on from the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, the first stage of negotiations relating to the UK’s departure from the EU concluded. At this stage in the process, what do we know about the possible impact on mental health services?

This briefing sets out an assessment of the possible implications of Brexit and some of the key questions that will need to be addressed as negotiations progress. It also outlines the policy positions the Mental Health Network has been advocating for, in conjunction with our partners in the Cavendish Coalition and the Brexit Health Alliance, and will continue to do so as the government’s plans develop.
