Sir Norman Lamb
A long-standing and active campaigner for mental health, Sir Norman Lamb has worked to challenge stigma around mental health and to ensure people with mental health issues are treated with the same priority as patients with physical health needs.
A former health minister from 2012 to 2015, Sir Norman introduced the first access and waiting time standards in mental health care for the treatment of mental health problems like depression and anxiety, and for patients experiencing a first episode of psychosis. Prior to this he was also a Minister in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
In 2019, Sir Norman Lamb received a knighthood in the Queen’s birthday honours for his public and political service, notably his contribution to mental health.
