Carbon Neutral

Motion submitted by Councillor Dow:-

 

“Eastbourne Borough Council acknowledges the work achieved by this administration since 2007 to offset the negative effects of climate change.

 

In keeping with our ambitious programme to date, Eastbourne Borough Council will deliver a carbon neutral town by 2030.”

9b

Mental Health Challenge

Motion submitted by Councillor Holt –

 

“1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year.  The World Health Organisation predicts that depression will be the second most common health condition worldwide by 2020.  Mental ill health costs some £105 billion each year in England alone.  People with a severe mental illness die up to 20 years younger than their peers in the UK.

 

This Council believes:

As a local authority we have a crucial role to play in improving the mental health of everyone in our community and tackling some of the widest and most entrenched inequalities in health.

Mental health should be a priority across all the local authority’s areas of responsibility, including housing, community safety and planning.

All councillors, whether members of the Executive or Scrutiny and in our community and casework roles, can play a positive role in championing mental health on an individual and strategic basis.

 

This Council resolves:

To sign the Local Authorities’ Mental Health Challenge run by Centre for Mental Health, Mental Health Foundation, AMHP, Mind, Rethink Mental Illness, Royal College of Psychiatrists and YoungMinds.

We commit to appoint an elected member as ‘mental health champion’ across the council.

We will seek to identify a member of staff within the council to act as ‘lead officer’ for mental health.

 

The Council will also:

Support positive mental health in our community, including in local schools, neighbourhoods and workplaces.

Work to reduce inequalities in mental health in our community.

Work with local partners to offer effective support for people with mental health needs.

Tackle discrimination on the grounds of mental health in our community.

Proactively listen to people of all ages and backgrounds about what they need for better mental health.”
