Call for mental health tax

Doctors and MPs are calling on technology companies to pay a mental health tax, and for addiction to social media to be classed as a disease. A report, from an all-parliamentary group on social media and young people’s mental wellbeing, has suggested a 0.5% tax on profits to fund research and education. The head of NHS England, Simon Stevens, has previously called for a tax on social media companies. He believes they should pay to fund the treatment for the mental health problems they create.
