NHS Tayside Proposal for the Centralisation of Adult Acute Mental Health Beds.
The PLUS Perth response
During the last year PLUS Perth has made a concerted effort to try to stop the centralisation of the region’s acute mental health beds at Carseview, Dundee.
The following reports highlight the arguments and the evidence against the proposal. We would like to thank everyone who has supported our endeavour.
“Our vision is for a world of wellbeing where people experiencing mental distress are fairly treated with compassion, understanding and respect and can follow their hopes and dreams wherever they lead.”
Who We Are
PLUS is a member-led mental health charity and social movement in Perth and Kinross. Our values include trust, honesty, equality, justice, community spirit, partnership working, love and compassion.
What We Do
PLUS works on the founding principle that every single person is valuable and assists people in making better lives for themselves.
PLUS inspirations come in many different forms, from a piece of great writing to a person who has shown amazing fortitude in the face of adversity. Our Inspirations are the guiding star that helps us look up and outward on the days when nothing seems to go right and we are losing faith.
Telling your story following a difficult time in your life is a big part of the healing process. Hearing what happened to other people – how they managed to overcome great adversity to follow their dreams in life can equally be very reassuring for us all.
