S2M-4942 Colin Fox (Lothians) (SSP) : Lothian alliance against depression: anti-stigma campaign

That the Parliament recognises that, partially because of the stigma surrounding mental illness, as many as 75% of people suffering from depression do not seek help from their GP; therefore welcomes the launch of the “Mother, father, son, daughter” anti-stigma campaign by Lothian Alliance Against Depression, and congratulates Depression Alliance Scotland, the University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian for the initiative.
Supported by: Chris Ballance, Mark Ballard, Bill Butler, Ms Rosemary Byrne, Frances Curran, Robin Harper, Rosie Kane, Carolyn Leckie, Tommy Sheridan, Murray Tosh, Mr David Davidson, Nora Radcliffe, Eleanor Scott, Margaret Smith, John Swinburne, Fiona Hyslop, Mr Adam Ingram, Mrs Nanette Milne, Trish Godman
