At tonight's full council meeting (Wednesday 1st March) I will be seconding a motion put forward by the Deputy Leader of KBC that the Council signs up to the Local Authority Mental Health Challenge run by several organisations and charities who work in the field, and appoint a councillor as ‘Mental Health Champion’ who will take responsibility to ensure that KBC’s decisions and policies consider mental health issues.

I’m pleased to be able to work with the administration on this issue as it’s clearly one of those issues that crosses party politics, and am pleased they gave the Labour Group the opportunity to be involved.

Mick Scrimshaw is the Leader of the Labour Group at Kettering Borough Council, the Shadow Cabinet Member for Finance at Northamptonshire County Council. He has a public record of standing up for Kettering as a County Councillor for the Northall division in Kettering, Northants and since May 2015, a Borough Councillor for the William Knibb ward. He is a keen cyclist and also runs a family business with his wife.
