VOX Scotland, in collaboration with partners the Alliance, Age Scotland and See Me, hosted a consultation event on 25th August 2021 to gather views from those with lived experience and those who support and work with older people.

Opening with introductions from VOX Scotland’s Gordon Johnston, this consultation event discussed older adults’ mental health as well as people’s experiences of mental health and social care services before and during the pandemic.

The report Older People and Mental Health – Consultation Report has now been published and will be shared with the Scottish Government to aid their understanding, inform policy, and help ensure mental health policy is equalities and human rights focussed. In particular, this is aimed at helping the Scottish Government’s Mental Health Transition and Recovery Plan.
