Women's Mental Health Taskforce report

The Women’s Mental Health Taskforce – chaired by Minister Jackie Doyle-Price and Katharine Sacks-Jones, Chief Executive of women’s charity Agenda – has set out its key principles for gender and trauma-informed care in its final report. The taskforce was set up in 2017 to tackle evidence of deteriorating mental health among women and poor outcomes experienced by those using support services. Drawing on women’s own lived experience of mental ill-health heard through a series of focus groups, it encourages commissioners, providers and practitioners to promote best practice in their organisations while taking into account women’s individual, gender-specific needs.
