SMSA’s Executive Officer, Jason Schroeder, has been confirmed as a guest speaker at Holyrood Insight’s Adult Mental Health in Scotland Digital Conference.
Jason will join an impressive line-up of government officials, health services, employers and third sector organisations for the event’s live broadcast on Friday 18th June 2021.
The SMSA represents the Scottish Men’s Sheds Movement at key local and national events to ensure the sector’s voice is heard and was approached to join the panel of guest speakers to discuss the very important topic of ‘Supporting Men’s Mental Health in Scotland’.
Jason joins a wealth of partner organisations—including the Scottish Government, NHS, Brothers in Arms Scotland, Support in Mind Scotland, Penumbra, Scottish Recovery Network and the Scottish Association for Mental Health—for this digital event and panel discussion to promote the benefits of Men’s Sheds and the Movement as a whole and discuss how collectively these agencies can improve mental health provision in Scotland.
The event will explore national and local actions to improve the quality and delivery of mental health provision; mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on mental health to reduce isolation, distress, and trauma; and adopt a joined-up approach to delivering mental health services both city and county-wide.
