Police and paramedics in pilot mental health project

Police and ambulance crews in Glasgow have joined forces in a pilot project to respond to the growing number of 999 calls involving people with mental health issues.

The mental health triage service aims to help people on the spot or to direct them to the right services more quickly.

It is one of a number of measures being used by Police Scotland to respond to mental health problems.
