Reflections on an event looking at radical change in mental health support, held in partnership with RSA Scotland.

To help launch the RSA Scotland Health Network, in partnership with the ALLIANCE, the Health and Social Care Academy hosted an event in Glasgow on 19 September 2019 to explore the radical changes many are calling for in the mental health landscape.

The event examined the gap between Scotland’s aspirational policy and people’s experiences of support. Guest speakers shared their views on what needs to happen to improve people’s experiences, the barriers to change, the drivers for transformation and how it can be achieved.

Our event report shares details of the session and the levers for change and the steps that can be taken to emphasise the humanity of those delivering and receiving care.
