New Mental Health Strategy open for consultation

Scottish Government want to hear your views on what a new Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Scotland should look like?

They have asked a series of questions, and your answers to these will help them write the final Strategy. Over the next few months Scottish Recovery Network will continue to make sure the voice of lived experience is front and centre in the development of this plan.

We welcome the opportunity to feed into the development of a new Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Scotland. At a recent Parliamentary event Kevin Stewart, Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care spoke about a new vision and approach to the plan.

The recognition of the need for change in the design and delivery of the new strategy over the next 5 years is encouraging. We are excited to be part of the change.

It is heartening to hear the commitment from Scottish Government to ensure people with lived experience are heard and valued. We look forward to collaborating with people, organisations and services across the country to support this.

Louise Christie, Director, Scottish Recovery Network

More Chance for Change

A few months ago we published the A Chance for Change report. The report outlines what you told us you want from the Mental Health Strategy. With the launch of the draft strategy consultation we will build on these conversations. Over the summer we will provide more opportunities for you to come together and share your views and ideas.
