During discussions at the Forum of over 80 stakeholders held in December 2017, we heard a clear consensus that work ongoing under the Strategy should be organised into themes. We agreed with that feedback. Organising the Strategy in this way will ensure that progress continues to be made on the specific Actions themselves, while also enabling work to take place between the themes on shared priorities. Working with delivery agents and the delivery system across Scotland – at a national and local level – will also be important.

Therefore, we have framed this Annual Report around the four themes discussed and agreed with the Mental Health Partnership in light of the feedback from the December 2017 Forum [1] . The themes are as follows.

  • Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing.
  • Adult Mental Health and Whole System Change.
  • Public Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
  • Rights and Mental Health.
