Mental Health Improvement and Suicide Prevention Workforce Development Plan

This plan has been developed jointly by NES and NHS Health Scotland to inform the planning and delivery of education and learning on mental health improvement and suicide prevention. It should be viewed as an iterative document which will be continually revised and further developed. Due to the diverse nature and size of the health and social care, and wider workforce this plan applies to, a phased approach will be adopted in identifying and responding to learning and development needs.   It links to the Knowledge and Skills Framework for Mental Health Improvement and Suicide Prevention. We are pleased to receive any feedback and suggestions on the content of this plan at or
