See us – Scotland’s mental health staff speak out

Mental health staff speak outMental health is one of our greatest public health challenges. This report aims to give a voice to those delivering Scotland’s mental health services as they cope with tightening resources and rising demand. The report is the result of work carried out by UNISON Scotland amongst our members who work delivering Scotland’s mental health services; in acute wards, in the community, working for the NHS, local authorities and the third sector. It aims to give expression to the concerns they have in their working lives and for the services they provide. Staff in mental health deliver services to people who are often marginalised and stigmatised by society.

The providers of Scotland’s mental health services are saying See Us.
