The Inter-Ministerial Group for mental health is led by my Rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, and is attended by Secretaries of State and Ministers from a wide range of Government departments, and other Government departments when required.

We are planning to hold the next meeting at the end of April. Invitations to members of the Group will be issued shortly.

Since the last meeting of the Group, the Minister has continued to engage bilaterally with colleagues in other Government departments on specific issues, such as offender health, gambling addiction, physical and mental health of offenders, and in relation to the Online Harms White Paper.
