To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to develop a veteran’s mental health action plan to ensure the long-term delivery of services and support.
Answered by: Shona Robison 9 May 2018
We welcome the work carried out by the Scottish Veterans Commissioner and the publication of his report Veterans Health and Wellbeing: A Distinctive Scottish Approach.
The Armed Forces and Veterans Joint Group, an expert group involving stakeholders and other key interests, will carefully consider the recommendations made. The publication of the report is an opportune time to refresh the terms of reference and strategic direction of work.
