Opposition parties today inflicted a defeat on the Government and demanded improvements to mental health services.

Speaking after the debate, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP commented:

"The Scottish Government must now bring plans to Parliament to show exactly how they will turn this ship around.

"The lives and wellbeing of countless Scots and their families are counting on a seismic shift in government policy.

"The Mental Health Minister should dedicate her summer to turning her portfolio around or make way for somebody who will."
