One-hour debate on perinatal mental health in Scottish parliament

A ground-breaking one-hour debate on perinatal mental health in Scotland was broadcast live from the BBC in the Scottish Parliament on 17th May. SNP MSP Clare Haughey put forward a motion on the Everyone’s Business Campaign and the need for perinatal mental health services in Scotland. This was supported by (with references to the new campaign maps) Minister for Mental Health, Maureen Watt, Green MSP Alison Johnstone, Liberal Democrat MSP Alex Cole- Hamilton, Labour MSP Anas Sarwar and Tory MSP Annie Wells.
