A report by the Scottish Parliament Cross-Party Group on Mental Health identifies a lack of treatment and support for adults.

The Cross-Party Group has published an interim report as part of its inquiry into progress with the Scottish Government’s 2017-2027 Mental Health Strategy (this link will take you away from our website).  The report found that people with mental health problems feel there is a lack of consistent support, with most commitments in the strategy focusing on crisis support or initial contact with mental health services. It calls for improvements in accessing treatment and support for adults with mental health problems.

The Cross-Party Group has written to the Minister for Mental Health with its recommendations.

The full report is available via the Scottish Association for Mental Health website (this link will take you away from our website).
