RCPsych in Scotland: Mental Health Strategy 2017-2022
The Mental Health Strategy 2017-2027 was published on 30 March
The Strategy outlines the intention to work on achieving parity
between mental and physical health over the next ten years.
It included a small commitment of additional funding that will
allow increase in mental health workers in Emergency Departments
and GP practices.
A press release was issued outlining the College in Scotland’s
position. We also developed a response on behalf of the
Scottish Mental Health Partnership.
Additionally, our Division Chair Dr Alastair Cook, was
interviewed on BBC Scotland prime time news.
