NHS Health Scotland and Young Scot are hosting 4 half-day interactive engagement events across Scotland to gather views and help with responses to the Scottish Government’s 10 year vision to transform mental health.
The Scottish Government has published a document summarising the proposed priorities for the new Mental Health Strategy. These events will provide opportunities to explore and discuss the Scottish Government’s vision; NHS Health Scotland will then provide a summary report for the Scottish Government to consider alongside the comments received online.
The Minister for Mental Health, Maureen Watt MSP, will attend a number of these events where possible.
These events will be of interest to people of all ages with lived experience, their carers, and those using, commissioning and providing mental health services, along with the third sector, NHS boards, Health and Social Care Partnerships, Integrated Joint Boards, local authorities, mental health officers, and many others.
The events will take place at the following locations:
- Tuesday 30th August – Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen
- Tuesday 6th September – Discovery Point, Dundee
- Tuesday 13th September – Trades Hall, Merchant City, Glasgow
- Wednesday 14th September – CoSLA Education Centre, Edinburgh
All events will take place from 10.30am – 1pm. Young Scot will also hold an additional event specifically for young people, though they are welcome to attend the dates above too.
To book your place, please visit the Eventbrite webpage. Videoconference facilities are available at the CoSLA Education Centre, Edinburgh, for those who cannot attend in person. If you wish to use these facilities, please note this on the registration form.
