Motion ref. S6M-01761.3

A Person Centred Approach to Mental Health and Substance Abuse - Amendment

Submitted by: Claire Baker, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish Labour.
Date lodged: Monday, October 25, 2021

Supported by: Paul Sweeney
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Tuesday, October 26, 2021

As an amendment to motion S6M-01761 in the name of Angela Constance (A Person Centred Approach to Mental Health and Substance Abuse), leave out from “that, when required” to "this can happen, and" and insert “with concern that, in 2019-20, there were 14,976 drug-related hospital stays in Scotland, 13,791 (92%) of which included a drug-related mental and behavioural diagnosis, and in the same year the rate of drug-related mental and behavioural stays was more than three times higher than the rate in 1997-98; agrees that those admitted to hospital, treated in A&E or at the scene by the Scottish Ambulance Service need to be linked up with appropriate community-based services to ensure they get the help and support they need to address the underlying drivers of their substance use; regrets that mental health services have been under-resourced for too long with unacceptable waiting times delaying treatment; recognises that outreach services are essential in supporting people to stay in treatment, but considers that more provision is required across Scotland, and that universal counselling services, such as Drugs, Alcohol and Psychotherapies Limited (DAPL) in Fife, must be more widely available to support people in recovery, and further".
