Petition Update



Hi Everyone.

This is just a quick update to let you all know how the petition has progressed since the Public Petitions Committee meeting on Thursday 27th October. I was no in attendance and I sent my evidence by email (as requested) but here is the outcome.

The petition has been passed to the Health and Sports Committee for consideration.  The official email (picture below) reads as follows:



All I can do now is wait and see if they wish to use it as part of their upcoming inquiries into mental health services in Scotland or if they will follow a different course of action.

You can watch the meeting by clicking here. My petition is discussed at 30:45.  The evidence I submitted can be viewed here.

I would like to thank everyone for their support over the last 8 months and I will keep you updated on any future progress.
