Public Health Scotland (PHS) has developed two sets of mental health indicators, one set for adults and one for children and young people (CYP). These are designed to inform and guide action to improve population mental health in Scotland, at local and national level. They will support monitoring of Scottish Government's mental health transition and recovery plan, which aims to respond to the mental health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
