FMQ’s 7th September – Children’s Mental Health


At First Minister’s Questions I highlighted that too many children in Scotland are being let down when it comes to mental health services.

We can do better for them.

It is clear that nothing needs more investment than mental health services, particularly children’s mental health services. Actions speak louder than words. The Scottish Government need to listen and take action. How many times must children’s mental health services be raised in the Parliament before the First Minister and her Government do something about the issue?

Let’s work together to deliver guaranteed access for every secondary school to a qualified and experienced school counsellor and to finally use the Scottish Parliament’s tax powers to stop the cuts to local public services and invest where investment is needed.
