Welsh government moves forward with ‘conversion therapy’ ban

Reading now: 654

The Welsh government has announced how it plans to advance its ban on so-called ‘conversion therapy’ after Boris Johnson’s flip-flopping on the issue.

Hannah Blythyn, the country’s Deputy Minister for Social Partnership, stated that NHS Wales has signed up to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to prohibit the practice.

In effect, organisations working in mental or psychological health that sign it make a commitment to not provide or commission ‘conversion therapy’ in Wales. “As a government, we’ve committed to ensuring that we become the friendliest LGBTQ+ nation in Europe, where no one is left out or left behind,” she said on 25 April. “Today I am announcing several further steps Welsh Government is taking towards making ‘conversion therapy’ a thing of the past. “In addition to seeking legal advice to determine all the levers we have in Wales to end the practice of ‘conversion therapy’ unilaterally; we will educate and raise awareness of the horrors and ineffectiveness of ‘conversion therapy’ practices by establishing a dedicated campaign in Wales.” Blythyn also confirmed plans to “better understand” how victims are affected by it to ensure any ban covers all of the “key elements” it needs to.
