Mental Health Foundation Scotland Policy Manager Toni Giugliano said: “We’re pleased to see the Scottish Government direct funding towards mental health at this time. It’s crucial that people with existing mental health problems continue to be supported and that people who experience distress know where to turn for help.

"It’s equally important that we prevent mental health problems from developing or exacerbating as a result of the pandemic or self-isolation – that’s why we’re working with colleagues in government and across the third sector to ensure that mental health is included in key public health messages.”
