19 National Initiatives/Funds

19.1 Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund

The Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund has been established with £15 million allocated to support mental health and wellbeing in communities across Scotland.

This new fund is being delivered and managed by Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs) in partnership with local integrated health authorities and other partners including Community Planning Partnerships and local authority mental health leads.

The fund aims to support adult community-based initiatives to help address the impact of distress and mental ill health caused by social isolation and loneliness, as well as addressing the mental health inequalities exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Grass roots community groups and third sector organisations will be able to benefit from the funds to deliver activities and programmes to people to reconnect and revitalise communities, building on examples of good practice which have emerged throughout the pandemic.
