Mental Health Strategy for Scotland: 2012-2015: 36 Commitments: what are the outcomes and where can they be accessed?
Email Strapline: Update on the 36 Commitments in the Scottish Government's Mental Health Strategy
"Dear Ms Muirhead,
Thank you for your email of 20 August to Paul Gray, Director General Health & Social Care and Chief Executive NHSScotland, requesting an update on the 36 commitments in the Mental Health Strategy. I have been asked to reply on Mr Gray’s behalf.
In the interests of transparency and accessibility, all updates on the Mental Health Strategy (MHS) are published on our website, including written reports when they are available. The mental health web pages (link below) also contain links relevant to external sites and reports.
You will note that, at present, not all commitments have an update. However, we will publish the status of each commitment on this website by Spring 2016, after the completion of the Strategy’s timeframe.
You also go on to ask about several specific commitments – 5, 6, 13 and 24. I will address these below.
We do not have any updates available on commitment 6 and commitment 24 of the MHS but, as stated above, these will be published on our website by Spring 2016.
An update on commitment 13 of the MHS is available here:
An update on commitment 5 of the MHS is available here:
I hope you have found this helpful in responding to your query.
