Angus MP Mike Weir paid a visit to the Angus Mental Health Centre at Montrose operated by SAMH and Angus Mental Health Association.
Mr Weir spoke with representatives of the charity, volunteers and service users on a number of issues including the movement towards Self Directed Support and how it impacted upon the service and service users.
Commenting on the visit Mr Weir said
“It was good to visit the centre and see the facilities provided, as well as meeting with representatives of SAMH, volunteers and service users. This is a fantastic facility that is doing good work not only in Montrose but serving many other areas of Angus.”
“Clearly the move to Self Directed Support may have an impact on the work that they carry out and it is vital that it be properly explained and understood by those who are facing changes.”
