A strategy to improve mental health in Scotland over the next decade has highlighted I.ROC wellbeing as a suggested tool for services.
The Scottish Government’s new strategy (published 30 March 2017) sets out its vision and the work it and other agencies will undertake up until 2027. The document envisages “a Scotland where people can get the right help at the right time, expect recovery, and fully enjoy their rights, free from discrimination and stigma.”
Under the Support people to manage their own mental health section of the report, I.ROC wellbeing is one of only two approaches recommended to health and social care bodies.
It says Integration Authorities, which bring together NHS and local council care services, and Local Authorities can mainstream a recovery-oriented and rights-based approach “through the use of tools like I.ROC (Individual Recovery Outcomes Counter)”.
