Argyll and Bute MSP Michael Russell has launched an online survey to gather information from those with experience of mental health services in his constituency.

This survey is not just targeted at service users, but also friends, family and staff in order to gain as full a picture as possible.

The information collected will then be presented to Scottish Government minister for mental health, Clare Haughey MSP, with an aim to working together to improve the support available to those living in Argyll and Bute.

Commenting on the survey, Michael Russell MSP said: ‘Having seen an increase of cases brought to me through my constituency office and at my surgeries across Argyll and Bute relating to our mental health services, I want to do all I can to help improve the support on offer.

‘I am conducting this survey to gather insight and opinion from service users, friends, family, staff and anyone in Argyll and Bute with experience of our mental health services.

‘I want to hear where you feel the services are supporting its users well but also where the services could be improved.’

The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JYKKRHK and all results will be anonymised before being presented to the minister.
