To ask the Scottish Government what the timetable is for the (a) development and (b) publication of its updated mental health strategy.
Answered by: Maureen Watt 22 July 2016
We will shortly begin a further phase of public engagement to inform the next Mental Health Strategy. This will involve a series of public events, together with the publication of an engagement paper on which we will seek comments. Following this public engagement, we will publish the new ten-year Mental Health Strategy later in 2016.
