Mental health strategy 2017-2027: second progress report
Our second progress report on the Mental Health Strategy 2017-2027.
It is now two and a half years since we published our ten year Mental Health Strategy. At the time of its launch, we committed to regularly update Parliament and the public on our progress with an annual report. I see this report as a crucial opportunity to update and engage on this work.
We continue to deliver on the 40 specific commitments we made in the Strategy. Our central vision, that we are all working towards, remains that of a Scotland where people can get the right help at the right time, expect recovery, and fully enjoy their rights, free from discrimination and stigma.
