New project to help people with mental health problems

Mental health service users in Scotland will benefit from a new
Rehab Scotland project, which will enable people with mental health
problems help into work or education.

The project was launched in Aberdeen, by the deputy minister for
health and community care, Malcolm Chisholm.

“This work will include preparing clients for the world of work,
supporting them in their new job and helping them to be
reintegrated into society so that they can live as full and
independent lives as possible,” Chisholm said.

Rehab Scotland is a provider of rehabilitation and training
services. Last year it helped 103 people to secure employment, 137
to move into education and 112 to obtain qualifications.
