From YouTube: Mental Health Education debate - Scottish Parliament: 29th September 2016


Members' Business Debate on the subject of—

S5M-01183 Jenny Gilruth: Mental Health Education—That the Parliament notes what it sees as the vital importance of mental health education in contributing to closing the attainment gap in Mid Fife and Glenrothes and across the country; is concerned that 70% of young people recently surveyed by the Scottish Youth Parliament said that they did not know what mental health support was available in their area; understands that the Scottish Government will be publishing a new mental health strategy later in 2016, and notes the view that the strategy should provide clear curriculum guidance regarding mental health education.
