Question reference: S6W-03794

  • Asked by: Audrey Nicoll, MSP for Aberdeen South and North Kincardine, Scottish National Party
  • Date lodged: 14 October 2021
  • Current status: Initiated by the Scottish Government. Answered by Kevin Stewart on 15 October 2021


To ask the Scottish Government what it is doing to support mental health and wellbeing in local communities.


I have today announced a £15 million Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund. This is in recognition of the important role that small, grass roots, community groups play in supporting adult mental health and wellbeing and aims to build on the excellent examples of good practice we have seen emerge throughout the pandemic.

It also reflects the importance that the Scottish Government places on promoting good mental health and early intervention for those in distress, ensuring that individuals can access a range of different types of support to match their needs.
