2. The table in Annex A sets out a number of early actions that we think will support improvements for mental health.

Are there any other actions that you think we need to take to improve mental health in Scotland?
A specific target on more vulnerable groups such as those care experienced making it easier to access the support these people need. As Scotland's care experienced population contains some of the poorest outcomes in health and education. With care experienced people are a lot more likely to experience some form of mental health than any other minority.

3. The table in Annex A sets out some of the results we expect to see.

What do you want mental health services in Scotland to look like in 10 years' time?
Inclusive and easily accessed by all people from all backgrounds. A lot more in the public eye. Mental health services should not be attached to stigma or predjudices.
