Mental Health Strategy

This mental health strategy identifies the Scottish Ambulance Service’s vision and key objectives to be achieved during the lifetime of the strategy. It sets out a coordinated approach to how we will provide care for people in crisis, those who are experiencing mental health problems and those who are experiencing mental ill health. In partnership with others, such as people with lived and living experience, people in recovery, third sector organisations and charities, providers of health and social care we will adopt a preventative approach to mental ill health recognising the presence of risk factors of poor mental health at an individual and population level.
