Tayside-wide survey results have arrived!
The results are in of a survey conducted by Mental Health charities Plus Perth, and Angus Voice also Dundee Healthy Minds with support from the Stakeholders Participation Group (SPG)
Earlier this year some of you in Angus Voice and the wider community took part in a survey to compare what had been happening in Mental Health services in Tayside in 2021 with results from a similar survey conducted by Plus Perth in 2017. This would aid, we felt, the follow up report by David Strang published earlier this year (2021) in response to his ‘Trust and Respect’ one of (2020) resulting from the Independent Inquiry into Mental Health Services in Tayside.
The survey results can be discovered below and in an A5 version of the ‘Key Findings leaflet which we hope to distribute very soon in the Angus community (Covid permitting).
If you need any further help with the survey results or would like to discuss where we go from here having heard the results please drop us a line:
