    Today, Maree Todd, Minister for Social Care, Mental Wellbeing and Sport, announced the publication of the Mental Health and Wellbeing Workforce Action Plan and the Strategy Delivery Plan in Parliament. Both Plans are published jointly with COSLA (Convention of Scottish Local Authorities).

    The scope and direction of actions was developed with the help of over 20 organisations, including input from FVA

    The Strategy sets out Scottish Government and COSLA's vision of a Scotland, free from stigma and inequality, where every person fulfils their right to achieve the best mental health and wellbeing possible. 

    With an increased focus on wellbeing and prevention, the Strategy considers every part of what supporting mental health and wellbeing means. This includes addressing the underlying reasons behind poor mental health and wellbeing, challenging the stigma around mental health, providing early support, specialist help and support for mental illness, and helping to create the conditions for people to recover and thrive.

    The Strategy Delivery Plan sets out the actions that they will take over the next 18 months to make progress towards delivering the outcomes and priorities identified in the Strategy.
