Why Mental Health Matters to Scotland’s Future: A Scottish Mental Health Partnership Special Briefing Paper

The Scottish Mental Health Partnership believes it is time for a significant shift in Scotland’s approach to mental health. This means moving from a system primarily focused on crisis intervention and maintenance towards prevention of distress and the promotion of good mental health and wellbeing for everyone in Scotland, by right. We are therefore calling for a high level Commission of enquiry to lead and inform the transformation we need to place mental health at the heart of Scotland’s future. We also recognise that there are immediate challenges to address alongside the process of co-producing this future direction.
