Coronavirus (COVID-19): mental health – transition and recovery plan

This plan outlines our response to the mental health impacts of COVID-19. It addresses the challenges that the pandemic has had, and will continue to have, on the population’s mental health. It lays out key areas of mental health need that have arisen as a result of Covid-19 and lockdown, and the actions that the Scottish Government will take to respond to that need. Some of the work outlined here had been started before the pandemic, but we have included it because it continues to be relevant to our ongoing response.

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected every single person in Scotland. Many of us have been anxious or worried about our health, our family and friends, and changes to our way of life. Some individuals, families and communities will have found the past few months really tough. Inequalities play a significant role in this, and we know that the mental health impact of Covid-19 will not have been felt equally across Scotland.
