Mental Health and Wellbeing

A new zone dedicated to information on Mental Health and Wellbeing for the people of Scotland was launched at the start of the year on the national health information website NHS inform.

The zone, which is accessed through the NHS inform website, is divided into four sections - Mental Health Conditions, Accessing Help, Mental Wellbeing and Worried about Someone.

NHS 24 worked closely with several organisations including Breathing Space, the Scottish Association of Mental Health, Action on Depression Scotland, Scottish Recovery Network, Long Term Conditions Alliance and Choose Life to get the best possible information for the website.

Commenting on the new Mental Health and Wellbeing zone, Billy Watson, Chief Executive at the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) said: "Access to reliable and easily understood information about mental health is vital, to help people both stay well and find out how to get help when they experience problems. SAMH was very happy to be asked to help develop NHS Inform's new mental health web pages: this is an excellent new resource which will help many people".
