The Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT) has launched Getting My Life Back: Occupational Therapy Promoting Mental Health & Wellbeing.
Occupational therapists (OTs) make a real difference to people's lives and are keen to make sure decision makers have a better understanding of how involving OTs in policy development, service re-design and legislation from the outset will help deliver better services and better outcomes.
The Mental Health report is one of a series of Improving Lives Saving Money reports by RCOT. They cover everything from putting prevention at the heart of care for older people to taking pressure off our hospitals. You can find out more at Improving lives campaign reports
OTs are working across Scotland in a range of different settings across health, care, justice, employment and education.
