McArthur comments on launch of Polmont mental health review

Responding to the Scottish Government’s announcement that a leading Consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist will oversee the independent expert review of mental health and wellbeing support for young people in custody, Scottish Liberal Democrats justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

“Authorities urgently need to get to the bottom of what has happened at Polmont in particular but also establish how to stop the loss of more young lives in future.

“Mental ill health is all too common among young people who come into contact with the justice system. This is an important opportunity to shed new light on the situation and ensure people get the support they need from day one.”
