Scottish Association for Mental Health Consultation – What’s Next?
The Scottish Government’s Mental Health Strategy is due to end this year, and SAMH wanted to know what you thought should replace it.
One in four people in Scotland experience a mental health problem every year, so SAMH wants everyone affected by mental ill-health to be at the heart of shaping the future. In early 2015 they hosted two public events, held focus groups across their services and carried out an online survey to find out what people want to see in the next strategy. They also brought their consultation to the Rights for Life event as an opportunity for delegates to let SAMH know what needs to change.
