    Created: 31/03/2017

    The Scottish Government has published its latest Mental Health Strategy 2017-2027.

    This strategy outlines their 10 year vision for Mental Health Services in Scotland.

    Their guiding ambition for mental health is "that we must prevent and treat mental heath problems with the same commitment, passion and drive as we do with physical health problems". 

    The strategy sets out 40 initial actions to better join-up services, to refocus these and to deliver them when they are needed under the following headings:

    • Prevention, early intervention, and physical wellbeing;
    • Access to treatment, and joined up accessible services; and
    • Rights, information use and planning
