The Forum involves over 120 organisations, many with expertise in tackling mental health issues and others that have memberships that reach out to all parts of rural Scotland and from the public, private and third sectors.

Through ground-breaking research and this unique Forum, we are dedicated to making rural Scotland a vibrant place where everyone can reach their full potential.
