If you’re interested in the mental health of Scotland’s population then this report provides some valuable insights. It explores factors associated with mental wellbeing and mental health among adults in Scotland
using data from the Scottish Health Survey (SHeS), gathered during 2012 and 2013.
The report presents an analysis of factors significantly associated with low mental wellbeing among adults. It shows continued evidence for many associations with mental health and wellbeing that are well-established, for example the strong association between economic inactivity and reduced mental health and wellbeing and the value of being active (mentally and physically) and having meaningful relationships. It also evidences the importance of FDAMH’s work supporting the wellbeing and resilience of unpaid carers, as they are a group particularly susceptible to developing mental health issues.
