Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 12 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government which body will deliver mental health counselling services in secondary schools in Dumfries and Galloway.

Answered by: John Swinney 26 March 2019

Counsellors in schools will complement the range of mental health strategies that are already in place within schools and local authorities.

It will be for local authorities to make the decision about the delivery mechanism which will best meet the outcomes of the policy in their local area.
