Scottish Government seeking views on new Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy
07 July 2022
The Scottish Government would like to hear your views on what the new Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Scotland should look like.
The Strategy will guide the work that the Government, and their partners, will do to improve mental health and wellbeing in Scotland. This will include an overall shared vision, a set of outcomes, and how the Scottish Government will achieve these to improve people’s mental health and wellbeing. It will also describe how the Scottish Government will measure the difference they are making.
The Strategy will mainly cover the next five years, until 2027. However, it will also set out a much longer term approach to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the population.
The Scottish Government want the Strategy to focus on every part of what mental health and wellbeing means. This covers a range of things, including:
- Addressing the underlying reasons behind poor mental health;
- Helping to create the conditions for people to thrive;
- Challenging the stigma around mental health, and;
- Providing specialist help and support for mental illness.
