Yesterday, on Thursday 10th of October, World Mental Health Day, Argyll and Bute MSP Michael Russell published the analysis report from his recent Mental Health Survey for Argyll and Bute.
This follows on from the report being discussed and explored at a meeting with Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport Jeane Freeman and a number of local representatives from Mental Health services.
Commenting, Michael Russell MSP said:
“I am pleased to present my Analysis Report of the Mental Health in Argyll and Bute survey, especially as it is World Mental Health Day.
This was an instrumental part of our meeting with Jeane Freeman last week which lead to a mutual feeling that the concern expressed about mental health services in Argyll and Bute has to be heard and ensuring the best possible support is available is now the objective of all involved.
It is crucial that mental health is given the same attitude and care as physical health and as it is a day of awareness it is a great opportunity to reflect on this.”
