Mental health matters is ahead of the second placed resolution by over 14,000 selections.
This year’s total is the most selections cast since the individual selection process was introduced, and the first time over 100,000 selections have been cast by members.
The NFWI Board of Trustees has reviewed the results and agreed that one resolution (Mental Health Matters) will go forward to the Annual Meeting.
The wording of the resolution is as follows:
Mental health matters
Mental health matters as much as physical health. The NFWI urges all WI members to recognise the importance of parity between mental health and physical health, and take action to make it as acceptable to talk about mental health issues as much as physical health issues, and to lobby government for better support for mental illness.
