This film formed part of a successful campaign to change discriminative law

The Royal College of Psychiatrists has joined forces with mental health charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness to produce a new film publicising a Bill aimed at reducing mental health discrimination. The Mental Health (Discrimination) Bill aims to repeal and amend four pieces of outdated legislation that discriminate against people with mental health problems.

This film contains contributions from the College's President, Professor Sue Bailey, Mind chief executive Paul Farmer, Rethink Mental Illness chief executive Paul Jenkins, Gavin Barwell MP, and people who have faced discrimination simply because of their mental health conditions.

The Bill is supported by the government and opposition, but needs the support of as many MPs as possible when it receives its full Commons debate on 14 September 2012 to ensure it progresses. The College is working with the voluntary sector and Parliamentarians to ask people to write to their own local MP to encourage them to attend the debate and support the Bill.

If you're not sure who your MP is, input your postcode at http://www.theyworkforyou.com to find out. You can follow the progress of the Bill and the campaign to end mental health discrimination on Twitter #backthebill
