Virtual workshops - Let's discuss mental health in primary care

19th April 2021

19 April 2021 (North region), 20 April 2021 (West region), 21 April 2021 (East region)

We are delighted to be hosting this second primary care collaboration between the Chief Officers Group, Health and Social Care Scotland and the BMA.

The purpose of these Let's discuss mental health in primary care workshops is to share good practice, explore challenges and hear experiences around mental health in primary care.  Feedback from the workshops will be used to inform future key strategic work and conversations at a national level, and support and reflect positive engagement both regionally and locally. 

These virtual collaborative workshops (90 mins) will be facilitated to enable semi-structured discussion on the following questions:

  • What is the current experience like for individuals seeking access and support for their mental health? 
  • What is the experience like for health and social care professionals supporting individuals with mental health needs?
  • What would good look like for patients and professionals?

There will also be an opportunity to hear from Scottish Government colleagues on the work they have undertaken to scope “what good might look like” in terms of provision of mental health support within primary and community care settings.  As part of the workshop, Scottish Government are keen to hear your views on the potential models set out within their report of the short life working group.

We invite colleagues, from across Scotland, working within primary care, health and social care, third and voluntary sector; and people with lived experience of mental health problems, and their carers to attend these workshops – it’s important to have your say to ensure that future support meets the needs of our local communities.

Three workshops will be held across Scotland – details and information on how to book a space are below.
