Standing Up for Scotland’s Mental Health

SAMH is Standing Up for Scotland's Mental Health

There have been too many promises on mental health and not enough action. With the added pressure brought about by the pandemic, we need a radical new plan.

The upcoming Scottish Parliament election gives us the opportunity to make sure mental health is a national priority.
