Overview

We want your views on our proposed framework and priorities to transform mental health in Scotland.

The new Mental Health Strategy will be published in early 2017. It follows a four-year strategy that ran from 2012 to 2015. The new Strategy will cover a 10 year period.

NHS Health Scotland and Young Scot hosted a series of free half-day engagement events across Scotland to gather views on the Scottish Government’s 10 year vision to transform mental health.

The events provided opportunities to explore and discuss the Scottish Government’s vision. Health Scotland will provide a summary report for the Scottish Government to consider alongside the comments received online.

Dates for your diary:

•         30 August - Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen

•         6 September - Discovery Point, Dundee

•         13 September - Trades Hall, Merchant City, Glasgow

•         14 September - CoSLA Education Centre, Edinburgh

Why We Are Consulting

We have already carried out engagement with people and groups to help us shape and develop the new Strategy. This paper reflects what we have heard and considered so far.  We now want your views on:

  1. our priorities for transforming mental health in Scotland;
  2. the early actions we propose to take to deliver this transformation; and
  3. how we should measure success in 10 years.
