Demand Better Child and Adult Mental Health Services

Recent shock figures have revealed child suicide rates have risen by 160% in Scotland. We will increase the share of the budget spent on mental health and double support for services for young people. Let's call on the Scottish Government to take action.

Around one in four people in Scotland will have a mental health problem at some time in their life. Yet, under the SNP, the share of the budget devoted to mental health went down. We are committed to ending the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health issues. Tackling mental ill health is going to be an important part of improving the overall health of the country and relieving the pressure on other public services. At the moment mental health services are insufficient, difficult to access and involve lengthy waiting times. Sign our petition to call on the Scottish Government to take action.
