James Calder, Scottish Liberal Democrat candidate for Dunfermline, has called for the Scottish Government to give parity to mental healthcare treatment after speaking to constituents in the area who have discussed their problems accessing adequate treatment.

James has commented, “Mental Health is critically important and it is simply unacceptable that mental healthcare has gone backwards over the last few years under the SNP Government. We need to see more done to ensure Mental Health is taken seriously.

“I have heard concerns from the people of West Fife regarding this. One constituent told me that they had to wait over six months to see a mental health professional after going to their GP. This is a completely unacceptable state of affairs.

“If elected, I would fight to ensure Mental Health is taken seriously by the Scottish Government.”
