To ask the Scottish Government how it supports local authorities in developing mental health strategies.

Answered by: Maureen Watt 2 May 2017

Scottish Government has endorsed Good Mental Health for All, published by NHS Health Scotland in 2016. Local Authorities can use that document and plan partnership action to tackle the determinants of mental health, the causes of inequalities in mental health, and in developing local mental health strategies.
