Funding will support vital mental health charities.
Services that provide mental health support to Armed Forces veterans have been given a funding boost.
The Scottish Government has announced £1.4 million for Combat Stress and a further £666,000 for Veterans First Point.
Combat Stress is a UK-wide charity which helps veterans and their families deal with mental ill health including post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression. Veterans First Point is a free advice and support service for former service personnel provided as part of the NHS.
The funding announcements for 2022-23 were made during a Scottish Government debate in the Scottish Parliament covering both the health and veterans portfolios.
