Today we had shorter meeting due to members of the group going to the Scottish Parliament.
We had some inspiring news of how a group member had overcome some fears and felt a real sense of achievement. This has really helped the member’s confidence, and they are looking to develop this new-found confidence in to other areas of their live.
It was really interesting for group members to go the mental health cross party group at the Scottish Parliament. We went along to observe and to see what goes on in a meeting. It was interesting to hear the talks from “Action on Depression” and “Positive Prison?”. The group can now go away and look at ideas to bring to future meetings. We would like to thank everyone at the meeting for making us feel welcome and giving us an opportunity to make connections with other services.
