Latest news Have your say in our 'Well Connected Communities' survey: mental health in rural Scotland In 2016, people with mental ill health told us what it was like to live in rural areas. They said that they need a supportive community, and that it’s really important for them to connect in “low-level”, non-clinical ways that work for them, ideally close to where they live. This would enable them to connect with others pre-crisis. We want to find out more about this, so we need your thoughts and ideas too. You will then be able to help us see how support can be designed and delivered in rural parts of Scotland. This is Phase 1 of a project, and based on what we find out, we are hoping to move to a Phase 2, where some ideas can be tested in rural Scotland.
