Argyll and Bute MSP Michael Russell is running a fact finding survey to hear from constituents in Argyll and Bute on their experiences of our local Mental Health services in order to provide feedback to Scottish Government Minister for Mental Health Clare Haughey MSP along with key local organisations at a summit in Dunoon later this year.
The survey has now been accessible online for just over a fortnight but has already had hundreds of responses from constituents with a great range of backgrounds including service users, staff working in the services and friends and family who have helped loved ones gain access to the support they need.
Commenting on the survey, Argyll and Bute MSP Michael Russell said:
“It has been excellent to see so many people getting involved and providing feedback on their experience of our mental health services. Mental health care is an absolute lifeline to so many of us and it is crucial that the services provided are as good as they can be. By contributing to our survey you are ensuring that your voice and your experience is heard by those who will shape the future of the services.
I would encourage anyone who has not yet taken part to set some time aside and complete our survey.”
The survey will remain available online until Friday 23rd of August at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JYKKRHK
Paper copies can also be made available on request.
