Our Work in Scotland
In Scotland we focus on achieving social change with a range of both local and European partners to influence policy and raise awareness of mental health.
We have developed national mental health programmes in areas ranging from employment to the arts.
We opened our first Scotland office in 1974. Since then, we have played a pivotal role in earning Scotland its reputation for having one of the world's most advanced set of mental health improvement policies and we now have offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
We seek to achieve social change by gathering sound knowledge, developing partnerships and delivering programmes to influence policy and services specific to Scotland.
We work on a significant and diverse number of programmes across Scotland, including later life projects in Lanarkshire, employment programmes in Europe, a nationwide mental health arts and film festival and research projects with black minority and ethnic groups.
Our work in Scotland is unique and credible as we take an integrated approach, bringing together teams that:
- Conduct research
- Support service developments
- Design training
- Influence policy
- Raise public awareness
Our focus on public mental health ensures an understanding of what works to promote mental health across society, prevent mental health problems and support recovery.
