New survey on mental ill health in rural areas

Support in Mind Scotland and Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) are running a survey to find out what it’s like to live with mental ill health in rural Scotland.

The survey aims to discover how living in a rural area affects daily life – including the use of public transport, accessing services and being part of small communities
