Racial inequality and mental health services in Scotland: new report calls for action
29 September 2021
A comprehensive new report examining racial inequality across mental health services in Scotland is published today by the Mental Welfare Commission.
The report called ‘Racial inequality and mental health services in Scotland: A call for action’ looks at six themes: ethnicity and detention under the Mental Health Act; the views of people with lived experience, the experience and training of Scotland’s mental health services workforce; racial equality in that workforce, and recording and reporting of ethnicity across mental health services, including in the Commission’s own work.
